THE ACT: Matt Kivel
THOUGHTS: A singer-songwriter whose mellow sounds could serve one well in the bedroom. He performed in the Echo Park Methodist Church. The venue is not performance friendly. It was a warm day, and the church as muggy as all hell. I got to his set a little late, and there were already photographers there. I was about to start taking some photos, when one of the photographers said that he was “good to go” and that it was “okay to turn the lights back down.” Bummer for me, cause I couldn’t really take any decent shots once they dimmed the house light. Oh well … you snooze, you lose, I guess.
