Altadena! Coffee Gallery Backstage!

  • Coffee Gallery Backstage 2029 Lake Avenue Altadena, CA, 91001 United States (map)

Folked-up, genre-bending, good time band The Evangenitals are fresh off of The Melissa Etheridge Cruise AND celebrating the launch of their new weekly “100 Song Demo” music podcast. What better way to revel in their creative outpourings than up close and personal at the Coffee Gallery Backstage! 

Friday July 12th marks the return of this wild bunch for an epic and intimate double set of songs, stories, and sing-a-longs ranging from truck-stop lullabies to Klezmer-punk-jazz, ballads to barnburners, freak folk to rump shaking funk!

Founded by playwright/director Juli Crockett and opera, jazz & gospel singer Lisa Dee, The Evangenitals are an alt-country/Americana love revolution made flesh for your listening pleasure.

You don’t have to take our word that this is a not-to-miss show. Just listen to these fine folks:

"I hope these underground bohemian diamonds stay true to themselves; they should never be tampered with." (Music News Nashville)

“The female harmonies between Juli Crockett and Lisa Dee are like the Andrews Sisters re-imagined as tragic mermaids… I haven’t heard harmonies ring this good since the Chapin Sisters were on the scene.” (LA Record) 

"Transports you back to a time when the music came from front porches and folk gatherings that allowed for the songwriting to take center stage." (Today's Country Magazine)

“We’re talking about alt-country at its finest, but that’s only the start. Influences of Southern rock, cow punk and even a little klezmer pop make a tasty brew.” (Pasadena Weekly)

“Their sound is a chimera of American music, a blend of country, bluegrass, jazz and rock, with soulfondling lyrics, which might leave your skin wet from dancing and your eyes dripping tears of joy all in the same evening.” (Monterey County Weekly)

 Come on, you know you want to get your soul fondled…
