Soundcheck: The Ditty Bops & Jesca Hoop @ McCabe's Guitar Shop, 3/1/08
Part of an ongoing series.
On Saturday evening, local green-minded band (and Go Magazine covergirls) The Ditty Bops (MySpace), with Jesca Hoop (MySpace), John Reynolds, and Kaveh Rastegar (MySpace), performed at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica.
The shows also celebrated the release of The Ditty Bops' third full-length album, Summer Rains, with Hoop singing backup on three tracks: "Skinny Bones," "What Happened To The Radio," and "Feel From The Outside In."
The Ditty Bops (and Hoop), who are in the midst of touring in the Bay Area, have reportedly scheduled their next local show in the late springtime, while Reynolds and his band The Hollywood Hotshots (MySpace) will be performing next Wednesday at the Steve Allen Theater (MySpace) in Hollywood. January's show featured The Ditty Bops and Family Guy's Seth McFarlane as special guests, and next Wednesday's show marks McFarlane return as a special guest.

Special thanks to The Ditty Bops, Jesca Hoop, John Reynolds, and McCabe's Guitar Shop.
