Rachael Yamagata, who last month did an in-store performance at Amoeba Records and opened for Ray LaMontagne at the Wiltern Theatre, will be doing two shows at the Hotel Cafe this Sunday at 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM. Tickets are $15.00 apiece and are available at the bar during their hours of operation.
I wouldn’t procrastinate too long about getting tickets, as there were a good number that’ve already sold since they went on sale on Monday. One person is even travelling all the way from Phoenix to see her, which shows you how dedicated her fans are. And the last time she performed there back in March, there were reportedly about 50 fans who were unfortunately turned away at the door, but that didn’t stop her from performing a new song for them in the alley.
Even with the Hotel Cafe’s recent expansion, her performances this weekend still promise to be really intimate and really special.
