Tuesday night at the new Teragram Ballroom in Downtown LA was magical.
Jenny O, Kevin Morby and Rodrigo Amarante each made us fall in love with them, transporting us into whatever world it is they live in. I could picture myself in a dimly lit underground bar, probably in Greenwich Village, most likely in the 1960's, most likely drinking scotch and sitting around a small round table writing a piece of poetry together with a group of artists. I was to Amarante's soft Portuguese lullabies, grooving to Morby's magnetic aura, and swaying to Jenny O's whimsical charm. I couldn't have asked for a better lineup.
