"Acoustic Alliance 8" Is Tuesday!

If you want to hear some great original music in a marvelous listening atmosphere, join me Tuesday night, August 30th, for "Acoustic Alliance 8," presented by Cathryn Beeks and Listen Local! I've been to the last four "Acoustic Alliance" showcases and they are tremendous!

Acoustic Alliance Alums

The deal is this: four amazingly talented acoustic artists will share the stage during each set and do three of their best songs in the round. The showcase will be at 'Canes in Mission Beach. It's quiet, it's cool and it's only $5 to get in! "Acoustic Alliance" alumni will be admitted free. I shot this picture of one bunch of those alums during "Acoustic Alliance 6."

First set (7:30 p.m.): Andrea Reschke, Jamie, Mike Officer and Shant
Second set (8:30): Mike Spurgat, Jeordie, Christiane Lucas and Tim Walikis
Third set (9:30): Ren Daversa, Renata Youngblood, Christopher Dallman and Kai Brown

This event will be unlike any other "Acoustic Alliance" showcase that I've attended before in one way; it's the first one where I've never seen even one of the performers before, and the only one of the people on Tuesday's bill who I've even heard of is Renata Youngblood, whose picture I've seen amongst the contacts of a number of my friends on MySpace.

While I've never heard any of this week's artists before, I still know that most of them will be great, because Cathryn Beeks and her Listen Local team ALWAYS give you great shows for little or no cost!
