Steve Moramarco (who you know from Bean and Beck’s song Steve Threw Up) is playing a solo show at Tangier Restaurant in Silverlake next Friday (July 7). Steve points out that they serve dinner and it’s a great place to take a date. Steve’s a cool guy, so you should go check him out if you’re in the area.
Also on the bill are The Kids of Widney High and The Frequency. Tangier is located at 2138 Hillhurst Ave. (between Los Feliz and Ambrose) Los Angeles CA 90028. They serve dinner there – a great place to take a date! (323) 666-8666
Steve Moramarco has played in a lot of bands over the years. His folk/punk duo HILL OF BEANS had an indie hit with “Satan, Lend Me a Dollar” which was recently featured on the Showtime series and soundtrack “Weeds.” Power pop group BEAN had the distinction of sharing a split 7″ with Beck, pre-Loser days. Then there was HORSEPOWER, his short-lived porn film soundtrack band that wrote the title tracks to such cinematic masterpieces as “Transsexual Blvd.” and “She-Male Slut.” His ten-piece “Soul Punk Swing” band THE ABE LINCOLN STORY is finally finishing a new CD. Oh yeah, his Sunset Junction bad-acid trip is forever immortalized in Beck’s “Steve Threw Up.” If that gets you up off the couch, then you are a sick person truly in need of some help. But fortunately, help is on the way for you via his thought-provoking-and-bowel-cleansing music and lyrics, which he will perform solo-style.
