Tristan Prettyman & Whitley @ The Roxy, 3/20/08
Last Thursday, San Diego-based singer-songwriter (and avid surfer) Tristan Prettyman (MySpace) returned to Los Angeles, headlining at The Roxy (MySpace) in West Hollywood. Australian Whitley (MySpace) was the opener.
A self-confessed tabloid junkie, Prettyman performed her signature acoustic cover of Britney Spears' "Toxic," lamenting afterward that she's never around town where the celebrities are.
And If there was a theme for (what she repeatedly referred to as) the "spicy" night, it was audience participation, whether it was song requests, gifts of alcoholic beverages and handmade angels, and onstage interpretative dancing to the closing song "Love, Love, Love" from her debut album Twenty Three.
Just two days prior, Prettyman taped an appearance on Last Call With Carson Daly, performing "Madly" from her upcoming sophomore album Hello (which streets April 15th):
