Tonight: the Sugarlight Girls at Alex's Bar
Unlike those lame-ass DJs at your older sister's wedding, these disc jockeys play some shit you actually want to hear. Ya know, indie, garage, soul, '60s, '70s...that stuff.
I used to kinda sorta know Dylan, one of the SGs, way back when. In fact, I'd like to think I'm one of her first regulars. Back when I lived in the South Bay, my friends and I would go check her out at a Hawaiian bar called Hale Hawaii. Even then she was good and it never got old hearing Iggy's "The Passenger" on a monthly basis. Then, our old bands played together a few times. She sang/played guitar in the Tarts while I made a wall of noise in the Heathens.
If you go tonight, tell her Ryan said hi. She'll totally have no idea who you're talking about. It'll be great if you dig uncomfortable moments.
BTW...the Sugarlight Girls also appear every third Wednesday of the month too.
