The Usual Spektors
If you haven't heard of the amazing Regina Spektor, tonight and tomorrow night are your lucky, er, nights.
Her third album, Soviet Kitsch (the first album widely released via brick & mortar stores and available now for digital download via the iTunes Music Store) is a lyrical and musical wonder -- allowing the Bjork-esque Spektor to move from the poetic jazz that filled out her earlier releases into more mainstream (yet original) territory.
Her first time performing live in Los Angeles since the release of her last two albums, Spektor will be performing live tonight and tomorrow night at 9pm at the Hotel Cafe at 1623 1/2 North Cahuenga Boulevard in Hollywood.
So go check out her songs, be amazed, and then show up tonight or tomorrow night. You won't be disappointed.
We know we won't be.
