10/2: Skip Heller’s Birthday Party Gig in Echo Park
“An American hero flying below the radar.” — Time Out New York
The Skip Heller Trio — featuring Lee Joseph on bass and Mark Borinstein on drums — once again takes the stage at Rafa’s Gallery, a
tiny and charming venue at Sunset and Glendale in Echo Park. Ostensibly a country band, the trio is also colored by a love for 60s garage rock, Philly soul, exotica, and Roger Miller. The crack rhythm team of Joesph and Borinstein is a perfect match for Heller’s virtuoso jazz-meets-bluegrass guitar and his soulful baritone. The great Patria Jacobs opens.
Also worth noting about this show: it’s Heller’s birthday party.
