Richie Lawrence and the Yolos offer courtyard entertainment before Ira Glass talk

By From page A11 | May 08, 2013

Ticket holders on their way to the talk by public radio celebrity Ira Glass, host of “This American Life” on Saturday, May 18 — as well as non-ticketholders looking for a bit of free early evening entertainment — can drop by the Mondavi Center at 6:30 p.m. and hear a free performance by Richie Lawrence and the Yolos.

Singer/songwriter Lawrence has an interesting past — he was born in Tulsa, learned to play piano on his dad’s 1917 Steinway, studied art history in college, did some session work in Los Angeles recording studios, then fell in love with a woman from Sacramento and followed her to Northern California.

Lawrence’s new album, “Water,” features tracks with provocative titles like “Pirate Kitty” and “Poet’s Prayer.”

Lawrence and the Yolos will perform on the Corin Courtyard on the north side of the Mondavi Center box office, and there will be light refreshments on sale at the Fusion Fresh Cafe food truck.
