The Gypsy Den’s Fashion Night Out

No words were needed May 19 as instrumental bands Dinner Music for the Gods and Thee Swank Bastards performed at the Gypsy Den’s Fashion Night Out fundraiser. DMFTG played on the wagon stage first. The sweeping melodies and powerful guitar chords (reminiscent of an ’80s metal band) were energetic enough to liven up the crowd without overwhelming it. The 45-minute set was a refreshing showcase of rock, Latin and jazz influences mixed together with precision. Shortly after, Thee Swank Bastards (pictured) got onstage channeling Reservoir Dogs with their black suits, white shirts and skinny black ties. With the first song, guitarist Jesse Del Quadro jumped off the stage, giving the crowd a playfully aggressive stare as he picked away at his guitar. Thee Swank Bastards’ classic surf tunes were on point with the genre, and an unexpected find in the desert. The remainder of the set continued the relaxed mood and took the listeners on a musical beach getaway.

No Need for Garlic

Other than a brief respite from vampires and zombies, and the absence of Stieg Larsson, this year’s crop of summer books is going to feel an awful lot like last summer’s. Oh sure, there will be an increasing number of savvy consumers hunched over an iPad 2, Nook Color or a Kindle 3G, but even as technology changes, authors stay the same. From now until August, readers can enjoy a steady stream of new books and paperback reprints from best-selling authors such as David Baldacci, Danielle Steel, and Nelson DeMille.
