Brian Aubert v. Brian Auger

I cannot be the first person to mistake Brian Auger for Brian Aubert. I told the bartender/barrista at Ace Hotel — the one who claims to be a drummer, that opened for or appeared with early Modest Mouse — that we had just missed the front man from Silversun Pickup doing a free show, while we were at Hollywood Bowl listening to bad crossover classical. I had seen a listing in the Weekly.
Laterer, I had seen an ad for a free jazz series, in a plaza.

It took me 48 hours or so to think to check the difference.

Auger is a Brit and plays keys.

Aubert is a Yank — although he recently married in Italy — and rocks out. Rocks out in a tenor, at least and shares or shared management with Metallica.

For the Pikul EP, fellow Silverlaker Tanya Haden was enlisted to play cello on the track “Kissing Families”

I’m not sure where I’m getting this, but I’d kinda like to see Brian Auger the Hammond player backing the group of 11-year-olds I saw –twice– at Lytton Plaza doing “Whole Lotta Love”.
