Greetings my friends!

Feeling alone in Los Angeles? Or not? Whatever the case I have amazing news…

Hammerspace Improv and The Evangenitals are doing shows… together… and we are doing it all for you (if you live in the Greater Los Angeles area)!

Sunday July 27 and Sunday August 3 you can catch an hour of long-form Hammerspace improvised shows followed by a full hour of fresh-baked music from The Evangenitals.

Hammerspace Improv is my Experimental Long-Form Improvisational Comedy team. The Evangenitals are my Hillbilly-Love-Punk Rock Music Revolution. Together they are sure to create an evening of entertainment like no other! I'm also bringing bubbles and a slide-projector... so prepare for a journey into sound and light!

The fun starts at 9pm on Sunday July 27th at:
Tre Stage at The Berubians Theatre in Hollywood
(upstairs from the Lava Lounge)
1523 N. La Bre Ave.
Hollywood, CA 90028
(between Sunset and Hollywood Blvd.).

It’s only $6 to get in and you'll get a complimentary beverage! Bring a date. Bring your friends.
It’s fun, funny, and it has never been done before!

Thanks… we’ll see you there!

All the lovin' in my heart oven,
Juli & the Evangenitals

Sweet Love say
Where, how and when
What do you want of me?...

Yours I am, for You I was born:
What do you want of me?...

This is from drummer David Hurlin's blog "Dynamics of the Drum-- I loved it so much I figured I'd share it here, too:


Playing with the Evangenitals at the Nocturnal Bar in Santa Monica during our Klezmer remix of the infamous song "THE HOLE" which I absolutely love, I was hitting the drums hard. Juli Crockett was belting out her chant "Hole Hole Hole Hole" on the quarter notes and i was smashing my cymbal in accordance with her ferocious chanting. It was a pure stretch of symbiotic rapture, the whole band writhing in a collective exorcism.

In spite of how loud or violent with Joy it got I remained relaxed. I realized that by keeping pure relaxation, the kind of relaxation you feel when you're not playing, by holding that as the foundation of the drumming, then you can explore volume and its various pleasures both quiet and loud to a point.
