Three shows were booked at the last minute for this week. The
first, on Friday night, January 27, at
Velvet Jones
, is
The 88
, whose catchy, melodic pop on their recent release Over
and Over has landed their songs on national television courtesy of
such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, Extra, and The O.C. And just last
week, they themselves appeared on CBS’s The Late Late Show with
Craig Ferguson. Number two is The Spires, who will play Bogart’s
Café in La Arcada Court on Saturday, January 28, with The
Sympathetics. Then, on Sunday afternoon, longtime Santa Barbara
singer Steve Fort will play a set at the
Press Room
on Ortega Street from 7 p.m. That same night, the
three founding members of
Animal Liberation Orchestra
 — namely keyman Zach Gill, bassist
Steve Adams, and guitarist Dan Lebowitz — will play an intimate
acoustic show at
The Mercury Lounge
on Sunday, January 29. It might already be
sold out, so call now to check.  — MK
