Acoustic Alliance 11 Is Tuesday

Patti ZlaketIt's time for another one of those showcases I love so much, Acoustic Alliance 11! Produced by Cathryn Beeks, Listen Local and Idynomite Media, the show will start at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 21, at Brick By Brick.

I've been to the last seven Acoustic Alliance showcases and they are tremendous! The events always feature a dozen talented artists who share the stage in the round in three different groups of four, with every singer/songwriter performing three of their best songs.

Here is the schedule for this event's trio of sets:

Simeon FlickFirst set (7:30 p.m.): Alyssa Jacey, Kevin Danzig, Paige Aufhammer and Cat and Matt

Second set (8:30): Patti Zlaket, Rusty Jones, Simeon Flick and Lee Tyler Post

Third set (9:30): Sven-Erik Seaholm, Lisa Sanders, Christopher Dale and Jimmy Lewis

After five episodes at Canes, the showcase is returning to Brick By Brick in Bay Park, where it was when I saw AA3 and AA4 early last year. I understand The Brick now has a restaurant named Lot 81, so I'm looking forward to checking out the food. The doors will open at 7 p.m. with a $6 cover. Alums of previous Acoustic Alliance shows will be admitted free!

I shot the picture above of my friend Patti Zlaket at one of Bridgid's Music Mondays in May of 2004, and the one of Simeon Flick last November during the San Diego Indie Music Fest.
