MUSICAL GUEST: SAM BABAYAN
Once in a blue moon a band comes along that can change the landscape of music itself, forging a pleasantly different direction. Blending a sweet mix of classic American and British infused rock, folk, and Eastern/Armenian tinges, The Dirty Diamond takes on a colorful musical journey.
Their soulful and melodic writing creates a vast space in the theatre the mind and heart.
The Dirty Diamond was formed by singer/songwriter Sam Babayan in 2006 and instantly gained a devout audience, performing in Los Angeles venues including the House of Blues, Troubadour, and El Rey Theatre. A stir of activity and touring stimulated the release of their self-titled debut CD in 2008. Soon after, the band caught the attention of LA based producer Matt Pszonak and work began on their sophomore release.
“Our Divine & Sovereign Mother” was released in the winter of 2011. From the Eastern-hughed opener ‘Calendar Expires’ to the lush ballad ‘Death Won’t Hurt’, Sam and company have taken Rock & Roll to new and exciting heights. Listen for yourself and experience their self coined ‘Brand New Vintage’ tunes during their November 2012 “Calendar Expires” Coastal Tour.
