Last night I went to a new venue in Ventura, CA to see The Wood Brothers, one of whom is Chris Wood of today’s selection. It was an old bowling alley that has very recently been converted into a music venue and restaurant. Though it’s probably not the best sounding place I’ve ever seen a show, and they actually keep the PA low enough that you can hear the chatter of the crowd at times, I’m planning to go back soon. Actually, in a couple weeks they have Melvin Seals coming through there with the surviving members of the Jerry Garcia Band. It’s always fun to discover a new venue, especially a small one with reasonable ticket prices.
