One of the things I miss most about Los Angeles is Largo. Anyone who’s been, myself included, will stand by the fact that there is nothing better to do in L.A., Monday to Saturday, then attend every one’s favorite friendly Fairfax venue. The food is spectacular and so is the company and no matter what night you’re there, you’re destined to be in for a treat.  Anyone worth your ear is familiar with Flanagan and his fine establishment and seeing them perform in this kind of place is like nothing you’ve ever experienced.  There was a good chunk of time there where my friend Eric and I were making the trip almost every weekend to see our favorites in action. Anyone who has been can tell you, Largo cannot be beat.

Not convinced? WELL!  There appears to be a film coming out on this most hallowed of grounds and the website offers quite a good sampling of what’s so awesome about the whole experience, with short video clips of Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Amiee Mann, Zach Galifianakis, Grant Lee Phillips and many more. Actually, if you’re at all a fan of Brion, and really, you should immediately ensure that you are, watch his clip. His Largo sets are the stuff of legend and being that if you even thought of taking out a video camera during the performance, you’d be slaughtered, you’ve never seen anything like this. And it’s just a taste. Check it out: www.largofilm.com

More on this as the information becomes available!

I could totally go for some Baked Honey Chicken right now.
