Legendary Promoter, Others to Discuss Roots of L.A. Sound at Silver Lake Library

Ed Pearl lives in Angeleno Heights. But sometimes he hits Silver Lake too, as he will Saturday when he comes to the library to talk about his club The Ash Grove and the music it spawned.

Legendary LA music promoter Ed Pearl is set to be a part of a unique conversation about the roots of folk, blues, country and rock here in Los Angeles on Saturday.

At the Silver Lake library, musicians will play and speakers will discuss the colorful era when Pearl’s legendary music club, The Ash Grove, introduced audiences to a handful of local kids like David Crosby, Ry Cooder, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt for the first time. The event is free and begins at 2 p.m.

We asked Pearl, who moved to Angeleno Heights after decades in Venice Beach, his favorite spots on this side of town. While he has been spending more time downtown in the trenches of Occupy Los Angeles, these three spots bring it all back home for Ed.

Millie's – The longtime Sunset Boulevard restaurant that opened up in the 1920’s is known as much for their gloriously greasy spoon fare as the individualistic styles of their servers.

Alegria – The popular little Mexican restaurant which sets itself apart from the standard menu, with its artistic takes on traditional south-of-the-border cuisine. A magnet for musicians and artists alike.

Silver Lake Dog Park – This just might be one of those most beloved spots to every Eastsider. Besides being your neighbor’s dogs favorite place to let loose, its just as famous for the social scene that revolves around their humans. (Go dogs!)

Silver Lake Public Library is located at 2411 Glendale Blvd. The event is at 2 p.m. and it is free.
