paul dateh album release party

I've been a fan of hip hop violinist Paul Dateh every since I came across this kickass video of him tearin' it up with Inka One. Then I saw him last summer at Kollaboration Acoustic, where they guy completely blew me away both on the violin and as a vocalist. He's one seriously talented musician, and now he's got a self-titled album out this week, available on iTunesicon and CD Baby.

To celebrate the release, he's throwing an album release party this Saturday, January 31 at the Dakota Lounge in Santa Monica Doors open at 8:00pm, and tickets are $10. If you're not in the Los Angeles area (or you're under 21), you can actually watch the live stream from wherever you are at live.pauldateh.com. Here are the event details:
