KEVIN SECONDS AND DAVID HOUSTON RESURRECT TUNE-UP SONGWRITER’S SHOWCASE

Posted on 17 December 2013 by Jonathan Carabba

Kev Seconds and David Houston

Two of Sacramento’s most prominent musicians are joining forces for a weekly songwriter’s showcase at Cafe Colonial, a new-ish all-ages venue located next to the Colonial Theatre on Stockton Boulevard. The Tune-Up started at Kevin Seconds’ long-defunct True Love Coffeehouse many years ago and has been resurrected a number of times since at various venues. This time around, Seconds will co-host with David Houston weekly on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. starting on Dec. 18, 2013 (note: there will be no show the following week on Christmas, obviously). There will be no cover charge to attend the Tune-Up, so if you can, bring a little cash for food, drinks and if you feel so inclined to tip the songwriters. Each week, Seconds and Houston will host, alongside special guests like Tom Hutchison of the Knockoffs (Dec. 18), Dr. Velocity (Jan. 1, 2014), Warren Bishop (Jan. 8, 2014), Autumn Sky (Jan. 15, 2014) and Jackson Griffith (Jan. 22, 2014). Check out Facebook.com/tuneupsacramento to keep an eye out for upcoming guest performers.

Eggie’s stuff is TOPS! Ed Roth put the fire in me when I was only 12 years old. That was back when we only had black and white TV sets. But what is so KOOL about it, is that NOW we went back to Black & White TV sets (I didn’t get a converter box yet) watching the B&W fuzz gives me ideas to stripe by. But when Obama becomes president, I will have a colored TV set in 2009. Keep pinning and pulling the lines.
