Lady Brain Presents Press Release

Lady Brain Presents an intimate evening of music at the legendary Lestat’s featuring Rebekkah Darling, Karyn Ann, and Julia Sage

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 – On Wednesday, October 9, Lady Brain Presents will host their monthly community gathering at the legendary Lestat’s West listening room (3343 Adams Ave San Diego, CA 92116). This month’s showcase will feature original songwriting from local Lady Brain Collective members Rebekkah Darling and SDMA-nominated Julia Sage, as well as nationally touring artist Karyn Ann. The all ages event begins at 8pm, and cover is $10 at the door.

Lady Brain Presents organizer Lindsay White shared her thoughts on the importance of supporting and preserving the listening room experience:

“It’s a little jarring how we have all become so accustomed to drifting off into the mindless glow of virtual existence. Listening room concerts are a wonderful way for the community to reconnect and engage with local artists and the businesses who showcase them. These spaces are so healing, and these artists are so worthy of the community’s full attention.”
