Local music legend, artist, and colorful character Allee Willis was recently feted at Silver Lake's Ghettogloss gallery, where the eclectic songwriter launched her latest video, "Hey Jerrie," which features Jerrie Thrill, a 91-year-old female drummer on an oxygen tank. Thrill first hit the music scene in the 1930s, and has headed up several all-girl bands in the decades since. The video is doing its viral thing, but in case you haven't seen it, take a second and enjoy the trip. (It's suggested you view the vid in HD.)
