Greetings and welcome to City Scoop. Today is Friday, May 25, the 146th day of 2012. Today is also the birthday of your Weho Patch editor. Here’s what else is going on West Hollywood today.
Drag artist Peter Mac has made a name for himself impersonating Judy Garland in his weekend cabaret shows. But who knew he had an even more expansive repertoire than the beloved Judy? Turns out, he can also do Liza Minnelli, Mae West, Katharine Hepburn and even Tallulah Bankhead. Check out the show Friday-Saturday at 8 p.m. at the
Largo staple Jon Brion is back for his monthly appearance. With an avid following, this music producer (artists ranging from Kanye West to Aimee Mann to Rufus Wainwright) and film composer (Magnolia, Boogie Nights, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) also plays piano, guitar, bass and drums as well as sings during his shows, amazing audiences with his versatility. Brion’s show starts at 9:30 p.m.
Fusing musical styles is commonplace, but here’s one fusion that few would have expected. Vancouver-based band The Real McKenzies performs Celtic punk. They write and perform their own songs, plus play traditional Scottish songs with a punk-infused sound that is hard to get out of your head once you’ve heard it. The Real McKenzies come to the for a 9 p.m. show.
