A Local Videographer Gets in Touch With His Musical Side
Brian Malone is a local documentarian who's taken on subjects as varied as Blinky the Clown and the vagaries of the broadcast-news business. On Sunday, December 2, however, he gets musical with a little help from an in-family pro.
Beth Malone, Brian's sister, built up a reputation among local theater-goers before heading to Broadway; she starred on the Great White Way last year as June Carter Cash in the musical Ring of Fire. She also completed a recording called The Lunch Shift in conjunction with her bro, and they'll share some of the material from that disc at Nissi's, 2675 North Park Drive, in Lafayette, during an opening set for singer-songwriter George Inai.
Don't worry: Malone, the guy standing in the background on the accompanying CD image, isn't quitting his day job. In fact, he notes via e-mail that "we are videotaping the show, so we need to have a big and enthusiastic crowd."
