Multimedia Journalist Drew Tewksbury started booking jazz shows at Echo Park music venue Lot 1 Cafe on Thursday nights earlier this year, but tonight is a special installment of Echo Park Jazz as a benefit for 826LA.

The show features Andrew Lessman Trioo, with special guest saxophonist Joe Santa Maria (Andrew on drums, Joe Santa Maria on sax, Emilio Terranova on bass and Clinton Patterson sitting in on trumpet).

The Clinton Patterson group will also present the soulfully imaginative keyboard explorations by Rhodes player Clinton Patterson with Andrew Lessman on the drums.

Come hear some incendiary underground jazz and help support 826LA’s wonderful efforts to provide tutoring services for kids in Echo Park.

Doors open at 9:00 pm, the show starts at 9:30

21 and up

$5 at the door – all proceeds go to 826LA

A lot of changes over the past few months for Lot 1 at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Laveta Terrace – they’ve added tables outside, beer and wine, and now some live entertainment.

According to the Lot 1 Facebook page, the cafe received its entertainment license last November. It was also granted a beer and wine license last year, and now serves up the neighborhoods best deal for mimosas (only $4). Combine food, booze, and live entertainment, and then add late night hours (open until 1:00 am most weeknights, and 3:00 am on the weekends), the establishment that once had those precarious business hours may draw a crowd to that little corner.

The cafe’s first live show coming up on Friday, January 7 is an indie-themed set of performances by some local bands, such as The Black Jesus from nearby Mt. Washington. We’re not sure what kind of music or if local musicians will be the focus for the location (the owner of Lot 1 declined to comment for now), but with the Echo Curio gone many are wondering if the cafe will help fill that void.

Will you go to a show that promises booze, dancing, and no LAPD busting down the doors?
