Tuck your sunglasses into your short sleeved t-shirt’s neckline and sit a spell. By February 11th 2012, Chicago will be under a blanket of ice so thick you’d think we were living at the poles. Meanwhile, in sunny Los Angeles, Syl Johnson will disembark from a Southwest jet to play his first show in California since the late ’70s. If you were there in those halcyon and buttons-popped polyester shirt days, don’t worry, his set has changed a little bit. With two Grammy nominations on the verge of bearing fruit the following night at the Staples Center, Syl is sure to be in rare form.

Saturday, February 11th 2012 The Echo
1822 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026
Doors: 9PM. Set: 10PM.
Following Syl’s set, Numero will take to the decks with Miles from Funky Sole for a rawkus three hour dance party.
Why did we bother sending out an email for a show that’s three months away? Good question. Due to the capacity restrictions of the Echo, this show will surely sell out. The kind folks at the venue have agreed to give us a 48 hour pre-sale window to make sure Syl and Numero fans get right of first refusal. Don’t say we’ve never done anything nice for you.
Want in on the pre-sale? Click this line of text and enter the code num032. After 10AM on Friday, the remaining tickets will be released to the teaming masses.
Lastly, because we’re in such a celebratory mood we’re offering our Syl Johnson: Complete Mythology box set for $10 off on our website until 10AM on Friday. Enter the coupon code sylbox when you’re checking out to receive the discount.
See you in Los Angeles in three months. Pray that our flights aren’t snowed in.
