Sure, there are plenty of classic rock cover bands — but for some reason we never get sick of seeing all-female groups tackle songs by some of rock’s most testosterone-driven acts. And with the unveiling of the world's only all-female tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, we thought it appropriate to throw a shindig that celebrates southern rock and blues - in all it's varieties.
The music world behind the Hollywood curtain has always offered a vast array of choices for those who pick from the "been there/done that" buffet. Here now is a rare opportunity to get an up close and personal concert by SoCal's down+dirty, tried+true diehards.
The outdoor stage at the Blue Star with it's cheap beer and (almost free - $1.00 donation) hot off the grill burgers & franks is the perfect stomping ground to host the second coming of Southern Rock in Southern California.
8:00pm: VESSEL of the MACRAME'd OWL: With a thunderous voice that channels the likes of Janis Joplin and Etta James, the gorgeously gifted Elissa Rosen will bring forth captivating renditions of classics we never dreamed possible as acoustic blues. Elissa doesn't just sing a song - she literally bears her soul.
9:00pm: HONKYSTOMP: Honkystomp, the original 7 piece bucket of Southern Fried, Countrified, Funkified, Rock and Roll! The brain child of Galactic Dan, Honkystomp is a refreshing blend of musical madness. Combining instruments normally associated with bluegrass and Country, (i.e., Banjo, fiddle and harmonica), with Heavy Rock and Funk Backdrops Honkystomp has created an entirely new musical Genre.
10:00pm: LYNETTE SKYNYRD: Lynette Skynyrd is the world's only all female trybute to Lynyrd Skynyrd. Hailing from Southern California, the band features an astounding array of topnotch musicians: Emily Burton from Fireball Ministry, SST Records guitar hero Sylvia Juncosa, Berkeley music grad Marika Tjelios, stoner rock entrepreneur Laurie Es, and seminal art-rocker Cranky Kirsten. From this varied group comes a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd that taps into those halcyon days when rock was to be experienced with all the senses. The music is captured from the pre-'77 archives and expressed with badass rockchick authority that stands the test of time.www.lynetteskynyrd.com
