Monday night, the LA-based Kristy Krüger (MySpace), who’s been labelled the female Johnny Cash, performed at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood before embarking for the next year across every state in the country (she joked about needing plane ticket donations for Alaska and Hawaii) in honor of her late brother Lieutenant Colonel Eric John Kruger, who “…became one of the highest-ranking officers to die in Iraq [this past November]… when a roadside bomb blew up the Humvee [that he and two other soldiers] were riding in”:

This will be my last L.A. show for a while as I head to all 50 states, performing a memorial concert for my brother, LTC Eric Kruger, in every state. Please lemme know if you have friends in certain regions of the country. I’m going to need all the help I can get..

“Goodbye,” dedicated to her brother and performed solo on guitar, was the high point of her set, which had the usually noisy crowd atypically quiet for the duration of the song. I even had to set down my camera out of respect for her and her late brother.

  1. Koga,

    I read your music reviews with great interest, as a live music fan, I’m always on the prowl for new clubs and music. Last week I visited the Airliner for Rasta Nights, and had a blast, could have been the secondhand smoke.

    Out here in the burbs, we have a club in Pomona called YesterYears that feature bands from the 70’s and 80’s, usually one hit wonders, that bring back memories from long ago.

  2. Anyone else think it’s a tad weird/creepy that the only bands this perv is into have young chicks in em…

  3. I think it’s a tad weird/creepy that you are complaining about pics of bands with young chicks in em. You’d prefer pics of sweaty hairy dudes instead prehaps?
