Spain will be playing a very special show next Saturday, November 29, at the Roxy in Los Angeles.
Its a retirement fund benefit for my former high school English teacher, Jim Hosney.
Jim didn't just have a profound influence on me as a youngster, he did so on lots of other kids all of whom, Jim saw, had the germ of an artist waiting to be released.
If you'd like to read a recent article on him, there's one here.
Spain will be playing one song as part of a program of bands and musicians (all alumnus of Jim's high school classes) playing songs from Jim's favorite movies.
Other bands and musicians playing will be my sister Rachel Haden, my brother-in-law's band Tenacious D, Gillian Welch, Juliette Commagére & Joachim Cooder, Anna Waronker, Maya Rudolph, John Gold, and more.
