I also dined with old friends at Dino’s Pizza (3520 W Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505) and at Porto’s Bakery (3614 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505), both of which I highly recommend.

Also on my CD shopping list but I didn’t find them:  FKA Twigs, Safety Scissors, Emilíana Torrini, SSION, and No Regular Play.

sveinThe Svein Finnerud Trio album is what I call my “Dan Purchase”, named after my friend Dan who seems to own every album ever released.  Frequently he buys an album just because he likes the cover.  Every time I go to Amoeba I always make it a point to do a “Dan Purchase”.  This album was only $4, and the band consists of a pianist, double bassist, and drummer.  I’m hoping they are similar to the Tord Gustavsen Trio.
