Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue fronted by Vanessa Niemann playing old-time countrified swing. I found the band's website and YouTube videos, and saw that they had taken up a music residency in Los Angeles, splitting their time in New Orleans, and noted that in December 2011, they were doing some very late night performances at Taix in Echo Park. I was planning on seeing one of those performances, but I was just too tired to make the late night trek to Echo Park, but then I got lucky, and Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue got booked for Harvelle's in Long Beach. Playing Harville's under the Congregation Ale House was like being booked into a roaring 20's speak-easy.
I was mesmerized hearing and seeing Gal Holiday perform country swing at Harvelle's, and at times, it was like hearing Patsy Cline channeling Wanda Jackson's rockabilly, and below are the pictures from that night. Her small space dance moves on stage became hyptnotic, and later learned, they were a trademark of her performances.

- Begin the article, claiming that Los Angeles Theatre is bad.
- Heavily suggest that the following ingredients of this one show, might "save" LA Theatre -
- Hollywood starlets (a number of whom are children of more established stars)
- film-based stories
- famous Hollywood director
- Close the article, by now claiming that Los Angeles Theatre is dead, but the show you just reviewed is not and might even establish people's careers (assuming they're an actor)
