“It’s your favorite number under the O—69!” says Linda Gerard (also known as Linda Fabulous, cause she is) into her head mic, during a recent Saturday evening at her legendary bingo night at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. I love a dirty joke, especially out of the mouths of senior babes, and the 74-year-old Gerard doles ’em out like my grandma does Werther’s. She also intermittently breaks into song and works the ...

After their newfound label Touch and Go was forced to downsize, the band had to search for a new home as well as a new organist.

Lead singer Jonny Bell’s scratchy voice, which sometimes cracks ... Read More
