Harvelle's in Long Beach usually hosts a rowdy assortment of live music and burlesque—but tonight they switch gears slightly and present the angelic country-esque stylings of Nola Shepherd. The Seal Beach resident performs her song collection, The Nola Album, backed by a band of talented musicians: Jim Quealy, Jeremy Long, Kelly Fitzgerald, James Quintero and Frank Cotinola. The music scene of Long Beach is more a melting pot than we sometimes realize—it's not all hipster bands and raucous jazz, there's a softer side, too. One to always support local music, we definitely recommend you come out to see vocalist Nola Shepherd tonight and her truly lovely song-crafting.
