I don’t usually promote other people’s events, but seeing that this is the best person ever, I thought I would.
My best friend, singer and songwriter Jeb Havens is playing his album release party at Rockwell in Los Angeles on February 17th.
And you’re coming! I’ll be MC-ing the show and also maybe (I really mean maybe) singing a little.
Jeb has been my best friend since, I dunno, a long time. We used to be boyfriends (here we are talking about how to be friends after breaking up on my Logo TV web show), then we realized we were totally forever in love, just not in THAT way, if you know what I mean.
He’s opened up for Little Boots, Matt Alpert, Ladyhawke, and more. Last year, he was all over the place with his heartbreaking cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” I know, I know, you’re thinking, how did he pull that off? Well he did. It was amazing.
His album, Home Base, was almost ten years in the making. It’s out on the 17th. It’s somewhere between Fiona Apple, Matt Nathanson, and Kacey Musgraves. I know that doesn’t make sense, but it’s all true. Here’s a teaser clip from his Fiona Apple-esque song, “Burn Slow.”
Come hang out with me and Jeb and all the other LA gaylebrities (sorry for that word, it’s just that there will be some recognizable gay-famous faces there) while he makes us cry by singing beautiful songs that will stick in your head forever.
I would never, ever, have been who I am or where I am today without Jeb.
Come celebrate his music with me.
