Music News – Rockin’ the Vote!

January 26th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

musicnews_11_06GROOVY LEMON PIE, anyone?  I don’t think you’ll find that selection at Marie Callender’s, but you can see them at the Buccaneer Lounge in Sierra Madre this Saturday night.  And you might recognize some of the faces, like these two in the photo with me: Greg Tortell (aka Tortelvis – note the signature sneer) and Jorge Mena (aka Butch Magnum) and those not pictured: Gary Putman, Bob Knarley & Frank Simes.  I have a hunch that classic rock & amusing antics will ensue.  Come on down & see for yourself!
