Cary Brothers might be most famous as that guy Zach Braff keeps putting on all of his soundtracks (like Garden State and The Last Kiss), but these days you'll find Brothers's folk pop just about everywhere. From Grey's Anatomy to Smallville to -- you guessed it -- Scrubs, the guy is making a licensing fortune, and he has yet to release a full-length album. That's going to change early next year, but until then, the best way to hear some of the new stuff is on the Hotel Cafe Tour that he's organized for the second year in a row. It's sort of a multi-state love song to his favorite venue, the shoebox-sized home to some of L.A.'s best-known undiscovered singer-songwriters like, oh, Cary Brothers. If you've ever wondered what West Coast liberals listen to in their smoke-free bohemian haunts, consider this a taste of what you've been missing.
