New face

I mentioned in this space the other day that “personal distractions” were among the things that had kept me from posting for three weeks. The main one is the fact that I have fallen in love.  The woman in question is Cheril Mulligan, a theater-and-film buff from and lifelong resident of Long Island. We became acquainted through Twitter, on which she tweets under a pseudonym, and “Three on the Aisle,” the theatrical podcast that I do with Peter Marks and Elisabeth Vincentelli. We got to k...

Music Notes: Strange Bedfellows (OT)

David Sanborn and Jools Holland once had a television show called "Night Music" that typically juxtaposed two very different musicians with disparate styles. Sometimes the combinations landed with a thud and sometimes they soared, and you were never sure which you were going to get. Here's a strange combination and a musical nugget you might never be aware of if you're not a deep fan of either: the Grateful Dead once performed a concert with Ornette Coleman, of all people, as a guest. My friend ...

Everything you need to know about shredding documents when faced with litigation: DON’T DO IT

If you are accused of destroying evidence, and the federal judge ruling on the motion starts his opinion by quoting a John Hiatt song called “Shredding the Document,” you are in for a very, very bad litigation day. This is exactly what happened to GMRI, Inc., the defendant in an age discrimination lawsuit brought by the EEOC in Miami, Florida. GMRI owns Seasons 52 restaurants, and if that name sounds familiar, it’s because it was my 8th nominee for the “Worst Employer of 2018.” The EEOC all...

Bonnie Raitt's 'rebirth' continues with new album

Bonnie Raitt has great taste in songs, and a voice that brings those songs - and the artists who wrote them - to a new level of appreciation. Over a four-decade career, she's offered definitive versions of tunes by the likes of John Prine , Richard Thompson and John Hiatt , among others.

John Hiatt returns to Fremont Theater on March 11 for his first Central Coast concert in 22 years

It took John Hiatt a long time to find his place in the music world. He headed to Nashville in 1970 and was discovered by an Epic Records talent scout, eventually recording two critically acclaimed records - 1974's Hangin' Around the Observatory and 1975's Overcoats - that garnered few record sales.

Venue news: The Rose to open in Pasadena in February

As attractive a destination as Pasadena is for diners and shoppers, the Rose City isn’t exactly a mecca for live music. That gets a shot in the arm in February when a new dinner theater, The Rose, opens. It’s the latest venture from Lance Sterling, the entrepreneur behind the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills and the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. The entrance to the 1,300-capacity, 39,000-square-foot venue is located at 245 E. Green St., on the backside of Paseo Colorado shopping center. The space w...

Madrugada - Industrial Silence

Madrugada 's debut album was one of those works which surprised you at the start and continued with the surprises throughout. At times Coldplay , at times Radiohead , at times John Hiatt , always with a touch of melancholy, emphasised by a production which sees the vocals brought to the fore and placed on a path of reverb which gives you the impression the vocals were recorded in an empty warehouse while the music was recorded in a padded cell.

The Practice

A Tenth Anniversary Re-Post: May, 2009   Stay open for business.--Gordon Lish You have never felt more uninspired. You don't have the energy, you don't have the will, you don't have... it. The temptation to avoid the blank page is so powerful that anything -- watching reality TV, scraping poop out of parrot cages, even going to the gym -- seems a vastly more meaningful pursuit. Surely you can skip the hour or two you've set aside to write, just this once. You'll make up f...
