January 6, 2011

Roadhouse rock and roll that’s immediately familiar like a favorite pair of jeans and feels just right in this neighborhood Irish pub sitting on a stretch of road between the freeway and the beach. The music draws you in, little by little and layer by layer. A little Led Zeppelin here, a dash of Steve Miller there, throw in some Motown soul and delta blues for good measure. The kind of music that’s irresistible to dancing when you’re drunk at a bar with your friends. In other words, a good time.
