For someone who is just releasing a debut album, David Luning has definitely established a reputation on the North Bay Americana circuit. Not only has he opened for the likes of Dave Alvin, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Carolyn Wonderland and Leon Russell, the young singer-songwriter has been declared winner of a few West Coast songwriter’s competitions for songs like “Whiskey Bottle,” “Northern California,” and “A Little Big Bad.” He’s also managed to clock some time as a ballroom dancing instructor and performed with a salsa troupe in New York and Los Angeles—and did I mention that he acts on occasion? How’s that for a renaissance man? Luning’s new album Just Drop On By drops this week; help him celebrate on Friday, Dec. 14, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8:30pm. $12-$15. 707.829.7300.
