Trickling down from Los Angeles steady stream of all-the-rage cabaret/variety shows (hey, El Cid, we still miss Below the Belt), theres a brand new happy hour at the Basement Lounge in Long Beach. Brought to you by Derrick Brown and poetry veteran Mindy Nettifee, the Lightbulb Mouth Radio Hour is every bit eccentric and delightfully random as its name suggestsand perfect for the hipster clientele the Basement has decided is its new demographic. Theyve got spoken word readings and poetry slams, live music, off-the-wall skits and other tasty little surprises. If you can find parking, its a great way to spend a Wednesday night.
