The Numero crew is headed to Los Angeles; we figure since we’ll be out there for the Grammy’s anyhow we might as well make a party out of it.
Follow them from the back streets of Chicago to the slick neon lights of the big time (our 2010 Syl Johnson Complete Mythology box set is up for historical album and liner notes.)
The Numero founders will be heading into town early to present a screening of Stony Island over at Cinefamily. Director Andrew Davis and co-star Susanna Hoffs (of the Bangles) will host a Q&A and Numero DJs will spin tracks before and after the screening. Limited tickets may still be available, but they’ll definitely go fast.
And for his part of the Grammy’s run up, Syl is playing a sold out show at the Echo, backed by the Breakestra on Saturday February 11th.
Our main man Syl Johnson is busier than ever and the press are trying to keep up. Check out this great piece on Syl in the Los Angeles Times as well as the in depth podcast about Syl and his musical legacy over at Soul Sides.
