2 of the most talented musicians in the world are performing an intimate set at the Largo in Los Angeles tonight.

Wendy Melvoin & Lisa Coleman, Wendy & Lisa will be performing songs from their catalog and music from the score of "Hereos" which they do as well.

I have seen Wendy & Lisa several times over the years and it is enjoyable. Lisa cracks these jokes and Wendy's expressions and storytelling is just great and makes my ears poke up.  John Mayer & Eric Clapton even joined them with Doyle Bramhall II at a show before on stage.

I wanted to promote this on Thursday but I felt with what was going on, it wasn't a good idea. So if you are wanting to get out and take a break from what is going on, Wendy & Lisa would be perfect.

They are also doing a meet up with fans after the show, so if you want something signed, they are more than happy and appreciative to do so.-Dr.FB

For tickets, call the Largo Box Office, 310-855-0350

Warner Bros. Records Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Warner Bros. is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary with this video montage of the amazing artists who have worked for the WB.

With the way the Internet has changed the music game, it will be a miracle if they make it to see a 60th Anniversary. (So, ahem, can they get the master's back before then?)

Who was the first artist to kick off the video montage of Warner's greatest artists? Watch and find out, but you really shouldn't be surprised.

Blink and you'll miss Madonna. Hehe.-Dr.FB

Update: as of 12/22/02, Warner Bros. have removed ALL videos from youtube.  It was the label's decision and not one particular artist.-Dr.FB
