Dave Stewart and Friends at The Troubadour

If you were in L.A. tonight and you weren’t at this show, consider seeking professional attention.

Dave Stewart and friends, Orianthi, Colbie Caillat, Delta Goodrem, John Mayer, and Dave’s 12-year old daughter, Kaya, played a show that was whole-heartedly in the spirit of rock & roll.

Thomas Lindsey kicked off the night with tremendous courage, backed by his exceptional talent.  The  crowd at The Troubadour was living Friday night like they earned it – cocktails flowing, conversations buzzing – the room was charged. . . and loud.  With no introduction, Thomas Lindsey took the stage, looked around, and began to sing.  No instruments. No band. It took Lindsey precisely 17 seconds to silence and command the attention of everyone in the room.

Given Stewart’s talent and true genius, his shows are something that need to be experienced first-hand.  He takes music, rock & roll, community, collaboration, and style to new heights.  If you pay attention to the subtleties, you’ll also discover his quick and poignant sense of humor.   Something about Stewart – everything about Stewart – will make you feel more alive, infinite, and connected. He reminds you that rock & roll is meant to be fun, celebratory, and invigorating.

As is the case with Stewart, Stewart’s 12-year old daughter, Kaya, is a talent you need to see for yourself. She will blow you away, period.  Kaya raises the bar.  The music business should be afraid.

Stewart was joined on stage by a great group of exceptionally talented friends. Among my favorites – and I’ve seen her before – is Orianthi. If you don’t know who she is, look her up. If you haven’t seen her perform, prioritize it on your to-do list. She’ll simultaneously kick your ass and melt your heart, simply in the way she plays. Then, after a couple hours of giving everything she has to live music, she comes off stage and  gives everything she has to fans, signing autographs, posing for pictures, and having in-depth, meaningful conversations. If you didn’t know better, you’d think everyone Orianthi met in the crowd for the first time was actually a long-time, dear friend.  Again, she’ll kick your ass and melt your heart.

You had to be there. I was there and came home so amped up I couldn’t sleep.  Time for coffee.

Here are some pictures:
