Most of you all probably don’t recognize the name, but this place has been one of those constants in my life, an epicenter of sorts, that extended even beyond family homes lived and lost. It is somewhere I’ve been throughout my childhood and into my adulthood; a place I’ve been a friend and a stranger; all in some no mans’ land on Pico. That place is McCabe’s.
Tomorrow night many musicians who have participated in the legend that is McCabes will play a 50th Anniversary show at UCLA’s formidable Royce Hall. A Rockridge Life’s own VDP will, at the last minute, join the bill of beautiful and laudable players including the legendary woman Odetta, with whom my mother had the exhilarating experience of meeting this evening. Odetta is a legend in her own right.
If you are in Los Angeles, take advantage of this rare occasion.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful woman?
