Again -- last Saturday, Hotel Cafe Tour 2008 (MySpace)'s Greg Laswell (MySpace), Priscilla Ahn (MySpace), William Fitzsimmons (MySpace), Joshua Radin (MySpace), Meiko (MySpace), Jim Bianco (MySpace), Jessie Baylin (MySpace), Ingrid Michaelson (MySpace), Cary Brothers (MySpace), and Jesca Hoop (MySpace) performed a sold-out show at the Henry Fonda Theater.

Three of the artists have since blogged about the tour:

Meiko: "I love all those fuckers I was on tour with. It's gonna be a sad next couple of days... The only way I can describe it is - it's like being on a roller coaster... and then getting off and feeling dizzy."

Jessie Baylin: "I couldn't have enjoyed myself anymore than i did on the final nights of the Hotel Cafe tour. i fell in love so quickly with everyone on that bus, i can't wait to do it again someday. I feel spoiled now, having all these fabulous people in my life. If ever any of them are popping through your town, go and be with them. you will enjoy it."

Jesca Hoop: "I think i am in love like 13 times over. 13 fast friends. I joined the crew after they were well past salty having been out for some time already. I must have joined in at good time cuz what i found in the fold was and irresistible... irreplaceable. I felt a gap when i left them all. After only 7 days. To Tal, Cary Brothers, Willie Fitz, Jim Bianco, Jessie Baylin, Brad Gordon, Jason Kanakis, Marco, Marco, Meiko, Allie Moss, Ingrid Michaelson and Jonny Flower... I love you guys!!!"

Special thanks to Greg Laswell, Priscilla Ahn, William Fitzsimmons, Joshua Radin, Meiko, Jim Bianco, Jessie Baylin, Ingrid Michaelson, Cary Brothers, Jesca Hoop, the Hotel Cafe Tour, and the Henry Fonda Theater.
