Because if — in a most crudely simplified view — Fresno is methamphetamines and slow death, and Hollywood is cocaine and fast falls, then Silver Lake is, well, coffee, sandwiches and guitar strings. And drum heads and bass amps and keyboards and the rest. Of course, it’s not quite as quaint as all that (and neither Central California nor the Sunset Strip are so evil or oppressive), but that’s the idea at least. In this community of houses and shops and bars and cafés and clubs, in the community of like-minded artists who revolve around the Ship, Earlimart have found and helped create community — the best kind. And when tomorrow comes and they leave for their first headlining tour, they’re taking it, and you, along with them.
