This Week @ The Mint: Dustbowl Revival Ticket Giveaway / Tony Joe White / Aloke Dutta / Funkyjenn and The Fringe Benefits

Here we go again! We have another great week of music prepared for y’all. The Dustbowl Revival (recently named LA Weekly’s “Best Live Band”) returns for the final date of their Mint residency. The next time they play The Mint it will be for The Dustbowl Revival NYE Extragavanza! Early Bird Tickets for NYE are only $60 and include OPEN BAR!

We also have the pleasure of hosting the legendary Tony Joe White who has written more famous songs then you can count on both hands. We’ve been hosting LA’s best live music for 70+ years and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Scroll down for ticket giveaways.

Monday: HunnyPot Radio Live is TOTALLY FREE, OPEN TO ALL, AND 18+. You’d be crazy to turn it down. Two Mondays out of every month, Hunnypot Radio comes to The Mint to do a live broadcast featuring industry professionals, artists and songwriters, discussions on the latest music trends, and of course, live performances! This week features John Anderson (DJ), Allie Shaw (DJ), Boom Shack (DJ), Jack Littman (Live Performance), Black Carl (Live Performance), Heather Reid (Live Performance), and Dj Rreal (DJ).  Free Show!

Tuesday: KBH Entertainment presents: Dessy DiLauro, Preach, JT Manning, and Headcase. THIS SHOW IS FOR LOVERS OF “GENRE BENDING.” Los Angeles-based award-winning singer Dessy DiLauro meshes 1920’s ragtime music with contemporary urban sounds. She has toured the world as a featured singer for Cirque du Soleil and throughout her career has shared the stage with Patti Labelle, The Neville Brothers, Deborah Cox, and Social Distortion.


Preach offers up genre-bending, club thumping songs with patriotic hip-hop lyrics. Country is no longer the only form of patriotic music! JT Manning, a native of Orange county, California, fuses classic rock, blues, and smooth Jazz. Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/producer, Headcase, fuses modern electronica with hints of soulful jazz and disco.

Tickets $10 / $15 under 21

In the backroom “Den,” the Cavity Comedy show returns with comedians Dean Delray, Punkie Johnson, Rick Glassman, Adam Cozens, Tess Barker, and Brent Weinbach.

Tickets $5

TICKET GIVEAWAY – Post an artist you would like to see performing at The Mint soon to our Facebook and we’ll pick a random winner to receive 1 pair of tickets to The Dustbowl Revival on Wednesday

Mike Dillon is hard to categorize, but you could call his music punk-jazz. Dillon is a vibraphonist/percussionist/vocalist who has been on the grind for 20 years. He mixes the bizarreness of Les Clay Pool with the jazz fluency of Milt Jackson and punk inspiration of Iggy Pop. The music is multi-dimensional and Dillon’s live shows are certainly a sight to be seen….and heard.

The six-man, one-woman band, The Defibulators, open the night with their mélange of bluegrass, country, and honky tonk.

Tickets $8

Thursday: We have two shows for you tonight! For the early show, Tabla player, Aloke Dutta, returns for a truly one of a kind show not to be found at any other night club in LA! Aloke is probably the only professional tabla player who plays tabla solo exclusively. Aloke has trained drummers such as Danny Carey (Tool) and Terry Bozio (Frank Zappa).

Tickets $10 / $15 under 21

For the Late show, we bring to you Funkyjenn and the Fringe Benefits. This band is a chugging rock and soul machine that harkens back to a day when live studio recording, analog machines, and the smell of pressed vinyl ruled the Sunset Strip. Funkyjenn has performed in front of thousands at the Hollywood Bowl and has lent her voice to such projects as The Mighty Stef and Scott Mellis. Guitarist/singer- songwriter, Jason Daniels, will support.

Tickets $10

Friday: Surge Events Presents: Beautiful Things, No Small Children, Midnight Race Card, 2 the Nines, and Gone by Sunrise. Midnight Race Card will healdine the night with their fusion of alternative rock and hip-hop.

Tickets $10

Saturday: Louisiana born, Tony Joe White, is truly part of America’s musical landscape. He wrote “Steamy Windows” for Tina Turner in the 80s, he toured with Eric Clapton and Joe Cocker, and he’s been covered by Elvis, twice. Don’t miss Tony this Saturday!

Tony will be supported by singer/songwriter/guitarist/pianist Charlie Green. Legendary producer Phil Ramone had this to say about Charlie:

“Charlie Greene is truly a joy to watch perform, and his compositions apply a keen sense of musicality, humor, discovery, and intellect….His will be a career that will be fun to watch unfold.”

The Barrelhouse Kings will also join the bill.

Tickets $15

Sunday: The Grateful Dead cover band, Cubensis, will perform. Cubensis authentically celebrates the Grateful Dead concert experience. Just like the good ole’ Grateful Dead, this band plays a wondrous amalgam of blues, country, jazz, electronic, and rock music, all in the space of about three hours on stage. Come down to the Mint to relive the magic that is The Grateful Dead live.

Tickets $15 / $18 under 21
