Joey Ryan, Kenneth Pattengale, and heavenly live music

Last night I went to a local coffee shop (that now serves beer.  Yeah!) to see Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale, two singer-songwriters from Los Angeles.  It was a truly blissful show.  Kenneth played a parlor style all Mahogany Martin and Joey had a sunburst dreadnaught Gibson.  One would sing a song while the other harmonized and then they would switch.  Kenneth played some of the most sublime, tasteful leads I have heard in some time.  Think David Rawlings.  It was a rock-solid 45 minutes and the place was pin drop silent.  Even their deadpan stage banter was perfection.  A truly inspiring show.  Catch them if you can.
