With a Lakers game on tap nearby, our choice of entertainment was as distant as could be from the glitz of the basketball arena. The Rikk Agnew Band, Order Disorder, LA's Forgotten and Revolting Sounds drew us into The Redwood Bar, a cool, dark and gritty spot that matched perfectly with the tunes of the day.
Agnew went acoustic with his trio and belted out "OC Life" and two other numbers to close out the gig, which found the place packed from 4-7 before everyone disappeared into the night.
December birthday shoutouts went to Agnew, promoter Candy Graham, Howard O'Kelly, Keith Fay and Israel Villar.
Here's Cat Rose's photos from the gig:
