2nd Street Jazz Bar + Grill III
December 18, 2011, 2nd Street Jazz Bar + Grill, Los Angeles: KWE, with The Real Jane, Juke Joint Dogs, and Motion Factory.
Ya Ya, the Lee Dorsey twist dance hit, opened up this vigorous package of KWE tunes for a happy holiday bash. Gift Of The Sun burned the first layer of paper off the futurist wrappings, while Optimist's Parking Lot took us on fanciful moon rocking flights, only to return to earth with a pimped-up version of My Alien that included an interpolation of the Dream Syndicate's Sure Thing. O-Yeah!
Set: Ya Ya- Gift Of The Sun- Life Is A Mountain- Future Makes- Optimist's Parking Lot- Yes We Are The Futurists- Outer Space- My Alien.
