The Meson Pop Up Gallery in San Francisco recently conducted a retrospective of the Fog City’s most noirfarious sons JIMMY VARGAS and his incandescent muse LILIANA SCARLATTA with  a selection of pictures and stills from their twenty years of collaboration.


JIMMY VARGAS is pictured here in the San Francisco voodoo store ‘Sacred Heart’ in the North Beach locale in 1992, which was featured in his debut novel ‘My Shadow Bride’.


The H sessions

In the words of Black Dahlia’s producer Peter Gage, the combo’s latest session, appeared to be a gathering of three jazz monks and a diablo crooner. Vargas has brought back the original members of the Black Dahlias, to cut tracks for their final album, with the working title H. Pictured are, Tim Bruer (Piano) Alex Hewetson (Bass) Tim Bradley (drums) Vargas working the Sennheiser. Pix by Harrison and Vargas.dscn5037-3dscn4987-2dscn5032-3dscn5020-3
