I posted the second and latest Marina Soul Club LA mix this past Sunday via my social media outlets, but I’m just getting around to it here on the ol’ weblog. It’s just in time for the midweek grind though. It’s the perfect hour of smooth listening whether you’re working on spreadsheets, pushing paper across your desk, or sifting through mostly useless emails. I promote putting your feet up and tuning in just after dinner with a glass of wine in hand 🙂 Find music by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Firefall, Olivia Newton John, Leo Sayer, George Benson, Steely Dan, Ned Doheny, Kalapana and more. 15 songs, 56 minutes. Grab a glass of pinot and go!

friday april 5 | melody yacht club

I’m back in East Hollywood CA’s ‘Virgil Village’ enclave on Friday April 5th from 7-11pm for just the third installment of what I’m half-heartedly calling ‘Melody Yacht Club.’ Since my appearances have only begun to have regularity, I haven’t fully decided to brand it with a name that I will forever love and remember with deep feelings of nostalgia. Maybe by my next post.

However, a friend and I have already been bouncing taglines back and forth, so things are getting off the ground. Some are borrowed verbatim from the internet but all are plays on existing band names, song titles, movie phrases and what not. Here are a few of my favorites so far:

“Drop it like it’s yacht” (already in circulation, but thanks @suaverob1 for sharing!)
“Some like it yacht” (courtesy of TMS!)
“Hit me with your best yacht” (courtesy of TMS!)
“Jenny from the yacht” (courtesy of TMS!)
“Talk yachty to me” (courtesy of TMS!)
and my personal fave…
“It’s gettin’ yacht in hurr” (this one’s mine!)

If a great tagline I could use pops into your mind after having read those above, email me if you’re so inclined! I’ll totally give you a shout on any future posts.

Anyway, this event also coincides with Virgil Village’s First Fridays community social night, so I’m looking forward to some great energy around the neighborhood and inside Melody Wine Bar. Along with their Happy Hour wines available all night, it’s a FOG Pop-up kitchen night fogdining.comfeaturing two great chefs creating their own takes on contemporary American dishes.
