SPOTLIGHT EVENTS • Acoustic Americana Music Guide, Oct 26-31, 2012

.
There are soooo many music events, and add this exciting lil' obscure one...
.
LATE ADDED ITEM, with the current complete edition immediately following, right here...
.
Sat, Oct 27,
the "Music Adventure of the Week,"
is high above Mt. Baldy Village:
6:30-9:30 pm The last "MOONLIGHT HIKE" BBQ and concert of the 2012 season brings singer-songwriter RON ELY to the Top of the Notch lodge, restaurant and bar in the high San Gabriel Mtns on Mt. Baldy.
+
It's one of the most unusual venues for music in Southern California, at the top of a ski lift, a journey up through the tall pines, into the sub-alpine zone that's too high for trees. Under all OTHER circumstances, it's an expensive ride on that ski lift, or an appreciable hike. But it's a FREE ski lift ride for this "dinner-and-a-show" event IF you contact Ron in time. He says, "I can get you passes on the ski lift, up, down, or both, but you have to NOTIFY ME BEFORE NOON SATURDAY. Just let me know the names and I'll notify the lift operator you're my guests." Let Ron know at ronely@altrionet.com.
+
Allow an hour's drive from L.A. or the SFV, plus 20-30 minutes for the spectacular ride on the lift. OR, hiking takes a minimum of an hour and a half for those in great shape, and substantially longer for everyone else. Plan to ride the lift down, either way. And bring warm clothes and a flashlight.
+
The BBQ is $16. Accepting Ron's offer for a free lift ride saves you the $16 the lift would cost you otherwise. So it's half-price from what others pay.
.

.
.
Now, here's the full edition, as published Friday:
.
.
Three quickies, to start this edition…
+
1) Two underpublicized EVENTS you need to note:
• Friday, October 26, 8 pm, GRAHAM NASH of CROSBY, STILLS & NASH plays a “BENEFIT FOR BRADLEY MANNING” at the Church in Ocean Park in Santa Monica.
• Sunday, October 28, 1 pm, is the FREE annual “DANIEL PEARL WORLD MUSIC DAYS” concert event in Santa Monica; it’s in the Guide’s Sunday FESTIVALS section.
.
=+=+=+=+=+=+=
.
2) One STATE-OF-THE-MUSIC quote that’s waaay too good to pass-up, comes from the editor of the “Alt Sounds Newsletter,” a publication devoted to the world of pop music. Really, you need to read this:
+
"… don't get me wrong, I know I'm nearing the big three-oh but I still know how to rave it up with the best of them, when I want to! The fact is, with the way 'dance' music is right now, or what is deemed as dance music these days, I actually don't want to! This sweep of generic electronica that is being thrust at us is boring. It's soulless and it fails to move me, or take me away to another place where I can dance and be free! Instead it leaves me feeling cold and wanting to stay in..."
+
That, from the editor of "AltSounds," a UK-based major online weekly e-newsletter of today’s contemporary pop music.
+
See? It ISN’T just us Folk-Americana-Music-types that find the current state of pop to be dreadful, and now you have a quote to stuff in the face of Big Music’s execs who only want to sign purveyors of sh-thump-revolving-door-rehab-pop-tart-du-jour soundalike drivel.
.
=+=+=+=+=+=+=
.
3) Brilliantly COMIC PR / GIG ANNOUNCEMENTS continue to issue forth from JOHN BRYANT of the bluegrass / new-fangled-old-timey-flavored string band MURPHY’S FLAW. Here’s the latest for their gig Saturday night, minus the photo of the crowd on the National Mall at the last Presidential Inauguration… you’ll have to imagine seeing that and reading the following from them…
+
[Photo Caption] “Murphy's Flaw, center, plays the annual Tierra del Sol Foundation Fall Festival in Sunland, CA last Saturday.”
.
“Patrons of the Arts:
.
“If we had been on our toes, we would have told you about the amazing Tierra del Sol Foundation Fall Festival that was held Saturday, Oct. 20.
.
“But things came up and other stuff happened, and we just didn't get the word out.
.
“But we did take these notes:
.
“We were magnificent.
.
“The crowd (estimated at 310,000 people) filled Tierra del Sol Foundation's campus to overflowing and it got so boisterous the National Guard had to be called in to restore order. There was only one night of curfew, though, after which things settled down.
.
“Several fans held up their children so that they could someday tell their children that they'd seen The Flaw. It was touching, in an historic way.
.
“You, however, don't have such constraints and can catch the next Flaw show, with only a fraction of the crowd, Friday at Froggy's Topanga Fish Market in the heart of Topanga.
.
“We'll leave the lights on and the tip jar out!”
.
[Their next gig is at 8 pm Friday, and listed in the Guide…]
