(07.19.07) Recommends:

The song "Reasons to Love You" by Meiko.

Today a friend passed along a recommendation that I check out Meiko. This is good for several reasons. First, it means that after these last three years and particularly these last two months I still have friends. And that means there's probably still hope for you, too. Secondly, it means that I got to listen to this wonderful music all afternoon. She has a record release party in Hollywood on July 26. And you better believe that if I wasn't kicking it San Mateo-stizz that day, I'd totally be there.

In the meantime, go to her myspace and check out Reasons to Love You. I think you'll be hearing a lot of this song as the summer ends and fall begins. And that's a good thing.

I'm jealous! Feel free to post your thoughts on the show in the comments! I bet she puts on a totally devastating live show.

Oh man, what a show! there had to be like 300 people there -- hot, sweaty, and wonderful! Meiko is adorable and her band is amazing -- she plays with a trumpet player, mandolin, standup bass, and on some songs piano and drums...the stories Meiko tells between songs are hysterical -- I hope she's always this down to earth -- there's no doubt this girl's gonna be the end of her set, after people begged for an encore, she played a song called "You Gotta Fuckin Tip" -- she wrote it after some guy didn't tip her (I guess she also is a bartender at the Hotel Cafe) -- SUCH a funny song and a great way to end a fabulous set. I bought her CD immediately following the show. She might have it for sale online soon, but she also mentioned that she's doing a residency at the Hotel Cafe all August long. I've got a new favorite singer and her name is Meiko!!
