Lucy Schwartz, Annie Bethancourt, Tristan Prettyman & Jesca Hoop @ Hotel Cafe, 4/1/09
Last Wednesday, San Diego-based Tristan Prettyman (MySpace) and local Jesca Hoop (MySpace) anchored a solid night of female singer-songwriters at Hotel Cafe (MySpace) in Hollywood that included openers Lucy Schwartz (MySpace) and Annie Bethancourt (MySpace).
The show also marked the beginning of Prettyman and Hoop's month-long residencies. Prettyman, who hasn't performed at Hotel Cafe in years, mentioned committing to a residency after reuniting with many of its regulars, including local Jim Bianco (MySpace), a month ago at a nearby bar. As for Hoop, these shows are bittersweet as she's moving in May to Manchester, England. She's selling the majority of her belongings so that she could fit the rest in just three suitcases, and hosted a garage sale last Sunday, saying, "Look it up on Craigslist."
Tonight, Prettyman continues her residency, with her remaining nights on the 15th and 22nd. Meanwhile, Hoop's upcoming shows are on the 9th, 16th, and 29th.
Special thanks to Lucy Schwartz, Annie Bethancourt, Tristan Prettyman, Jesca Hoop, and Hotel Cafe.
