News & Notes: The Fallen Stars, Coachella

Whew! Been awhile, eh?

Last Saturday night, Nov. 18, I caught a great bill at Marlin's Bar in Huntington Beach. I caught the entire hour-long set from a band I had never seen before, the quartet The Fallen Stars. Look for my feature on the band in the Orange County Register this Friday, Nov. 24.

The band delivered a great set. Wonderful songs, a strong chemistry on stage, everything really clicked. Inspired by a range of artists from Gram Parsons and Fleetwood Mac to Wilco and the Clash, the band plays frequently and there is no excuse not to catch them if you are in So Cal. Check out the band at

Walter Clevenger & the Dairy Kings headlined. As always the band was terrific, and singer-songwriter Kenny Howes was filling in on keys for the night. Anyone who missed Walter & company can see him play a free show at the Galaxy Theatre on a bill with Scarlet Crush on Friday night, Dec. 1. Visit for more details about that special night...

Did you hear the latest? Coachella has been announced and it's growing from two days to three days. April 27, 28 and 29. How are we all to survive? Pray for cool days and cool music. It's only five months away...
