It has been an awesome ride since The Belle Brigade's Monday night residencies at the venue formally known as Spaceland. Regardless of venue name change, the folks in the hipster neighborhood of Silverlake and the greater Los Angeles area filled the room with an appreciation that was twofold.

When Barbara and Ethan sing, they sing as one tightly knit, well-executed, story-telling voice. Being siblings as well as best friends give the other a solid shoulder to lean on. At the end of their set, Barbara could not be happier introducing her younger brother to the appreciative crowd in San Luis Obispo.
