The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, CA and The Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA

May was a magical month for fans of Kevin Devine in CA. The Hotel Cafe hosted 3 shows for his 21+ fans and the Chain Reaction hosted a last show for fans of all ages. Each night fans heard a different set of career spanning songs and covers by Kevin and some special guests. The first night was acoustic and featured Morgan Kibby. The second night was played with the Hotel Cafe band and featured Morgan Kibby and Joshua Radin. Both shows were opened by the Wealthy West. The third night was acoustic again and featured I Sing the Body Electric, Holly Miranda, Cary Brothers, and Morgan Kibby. The fourth and final night was opened by Family of the Year and Maniac. Kevin also played some songs with Carey Brandenburg who lent her vocals on his earlier records. I was blown away each night. Evolving lyrics to etch into my brain, new sounds to fall in love with, and an inspiration to strive to be a more conscious and kind human being are what Kevin Devine left me with after his residency. The sounds of each show haunted me for hours after its end. I am going to miss not having a Kevin Devine show to go to every week.
