From KCRW DJ Jeremy Sole:
Ok, HUGELY excited about tonight’s event. Every month when it’s time for THE REVIVAL SESSIONS I get excited, actually.
It’s a chance to gather a couple hundred folks into a historical Venice speakeasy from the prohibition era, and play all these types of music that I love, but rarely get to play for a shufflin’ dancefloor… all this blues, dirty swing, and soulful juke joint kind of stuff.
Each month my partner Jamie Strong (of Do Over fame) and I deejay, and host a live band.
Hard blues acts like HANNI EL KHATIB, NICK WATERHOUSE, THE STEPKIDS and other artists you’ll soon hear about it you haven’t already. TONIGHT is no exception, as we present THE PARK — who’ve been the official back-up band for Tru Thoughts artists ALICE RUSSELL on her world tours — and other heavyweights including our other special guest, the cult soul legend DARONDO!!
People, come get sweaty with us in Venice tonight. BUT MAKE SURE TO RSVP to TheRevivalSessions@gmail.com so you get the special entry price, and definitely try to come out early as it’s a super-intimate basement spot. Doors open @ 9pm, see yall sooon!
