So, a little bird told me about this super cool house concert going on this Friday in Lafayette to benefit flood relief for the folks of Lyons. The concert is put on by Little Tree Acoustic House Concerts and features the music of Eric Schwartz.
I need to mention that Eric’s concert is for 18+ ONLY (no children, please). Much of his material is edgy and not suitable for younger ears. Want to learn more about Eric? Well, here’s a scoop directly from the event page:
There are perils and perks to growing up listening to Dr. Demento and Dr. Ruth every Sunday night in high school. Eric Schwartz’s razor sharp, adults-mostly, on-the-spot wit combined with his exceptional musicality have made him a stand-out performer when appearing on the Comedy Central Stage (in Sit’n Spin); with comedy masters like Jim Norton, Rich Vos, Bobby Slayton and Jim Florentine on “The Bad Boys of Comedy;” at clubs (The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Ice House), on the radio (Howard Stern 100, NPR’s All Things Considered, Doctor Demento, and Air America), and on the web, where his edgy, political YouTube videos chalk up millions of hits and garner him illicit proposals from all corners of the globe.
Since arriving recently in Los Angeles from NYC, Eric’s talents as a first-rate composer / lyricist have quickly been noticed and employed. He composed the theme song for Harrison On The Edge, a liberal radio talk show in Los Angeles, wrote and performed the theme song, “Alcohol,” for the inaugural episode of “A Pretty Good Show” at the Vanguard in Los Angeles, hosted by Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development, Golden Girls), and wrote for Eliza Jane Schneider (South Park, Beakman’s World). Eric’s song “Clinton Got A Blowjob” recently won first prize in the Comedy / Novelty Category in the 2009 International Songwriting Competition.
Concert at 7:30PM
