A night at Hotel Cafe, Hollywood
If you’re a musician and you live in LA, you know about Hotel Cafe. It’s THE place for singer-songwriters to perform in Hollywood. This past Monday night, I went to support a colleague of mine…amazing guitarist and new to the singer-songwriter world, Zane Carney. I first met Zane about 4 years ago when we both performed with Katie Melua (a British singer-songwriter) on the Jimmy Kimmel show. I’ve been on Zane’s email list for years and FINALLY have been able to make it to a show. You know, the musician life is crazy with shows and tours…it’s never easy to make it out to see your favorite people perform. Zane is a member of the band Carney and recently got the gig as John Mayer’s guitar player for his tour this summer! I’m so stoked for him, John Mayer is absolutely one of my faves:) I was super impressed with Zane’s performance, if you haven’t heard of him, CHECK HIM OUT! He’s been a lead guitarist forever, but just recently started writing and singing his own songs, so inspiring! Photo source
After the show, Justin and I did a little impromtu photo shoot in Hollywood, across from Hotel Cafe.
Soooo…these jeans are so freakin cool, right! I had been eyeing them at Free People for a while (they were sold out) but they just recently came back into stock!! The design is like a bleached-batik boho pattern. And the top was on sale at Urban Outfitters for $19.99! ($29.99 online).
These Charles David boots are so versatile…great with long flares and way sexy with short dresses or shorts!
My favorite venues are smaller, more intimate settings where you can really connect with the artist. Hotel Cafe, Viper Room, The Mint, just to name a few. What are your favorites?
