Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2005
Arguably L.A.'s hottest spot to see almost-famous singer-songwriters like Rachel Yamagata, Jim Bianco, and Joe Purdy and ogle Hollywood's freakishly-good-looking, purposefully-disheveled local hipsters while pretending not to care, Hotel Cafe has arrived. Big time. KCRW knows it. L.A. Weekly and The L.A. Times knows it. And now Koshi fans, the fashion-savvy girly-rock chicks that frequent iluvkoshi.com, know it too.
Thursday, September 1st, Koshi and California Sound Control's "L.A. Woman: Song Book Series" presents Rachel Robinson with Shannon Hurley and Allison Sattinger at The Hotel Cafe. You may have heard Robinson's heartbreakingly adorable "My Dog & Me" as licensed for Milk Bone's Make-Your-Dog-Famous Campaign, or her Beattles-esque "Major Brown And His Technicolor Glasses" on the WBs "Highschool Reunion" or Playboy TV. If you haven't, you're in for a treat. Robinson's bubbly devil-may-care persona is almost as engaging as her catchy saccharin brand of rock and roll. L.A. Woman: Song Book One's Shannon Hurley of "Don't Call Us Tori!" fame will open for Robinson, with soulful local chanteuse, Allison Sattinger kicking things off.

A happy alternative to the played-out corporate music domineering today's airwaves, "L.A. Woman: Song Book One" is made especially for girls on the look out for what's next, with most of the artists already getting their own song placements in TV and movies, radio air time, and gigs opening for the likes of Jewel, Gwen Stefani, The Black Eyed Peas, and Poe.
