Hotel Cafe Tour
Onetime Hollywood coffee shop the Hotel Cafe has evolved into what many feel is the best singer-songwriter haunt on the West Coast — mainly because of an influx of serious talent from around the country looking to catch the ear of movie and television music supervisors who stalk the venue for new voices. Before all that, though, it was a home away from home for artists like Cary Brothers — who achieved indie infamy when his song "Blue Eyes" became a hit on the Garden State soundtrack — to come back to for camaraderie and artistic support. Inspired by the notion of taking a typical Saturday night there on the road, Brothers will check into the Bluebird this Friday with a bunch of friends, including Ingrid Michaelson, Dan Wilson, Meiko and Jim Bianco.
