We’re turning 72

Mint Anniversary

After 72 years, the Mint remains one of LA’s most historic landmarks in the city’s musical landscape.  It’s where Ben Harper got his start (and recently returned as Relentless 7), and Taj Mahal recorded his Grammy-award winning album.  In recent years The Mint has reinvented itself to a whole new generation of roots music aficionados as well as becoming the unofficial hub of New Orleans music on the left coast.  The room’s intimate vibe has only been enhanced by its renovations topped off with an art installation by LA artist, Norton Wisdom (http://www.nortonwisdom.com).   

To celebrate the Mint’s 72nd anniversary we are presenting an all-star series.  Two nights of Marc Broussard, Zigaboo Modeliste (of the METERS), Rupa & the April Fishes, Faun Fables, Los Pinguos, and ending with a November residency by the legendary Royal Crown Revue.  The series showcases the diversity of The Mint, featuring some of the best musicians from the dirty south, homegrown in California, and in the case of Faun Fables, another dimension of the folk universe altogether.
