Little Hurricane

It’s been a big year for local duo Little Hurricane. After releasing the album Homewrecker, frontman Tone Catalano and drummer Celeste “CC” Spina found themselves at the center of a storm of their own—a hurricane of buzz. In August, they got fans and critics talking with a set at the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, and the very next night they cleaned up at the San Diego Music Awards, taking trophies in three of the four categories in which they were nominated, including Album of the Year, which typically rewards major-label heavies like Switchfoot, Jason Mraz, and Angels and Airwaves. They call their music “dirty blues,” the same kind of raggedly soulful rock ’n’ roll that fans of the Black Keys and the White Stripes love so well. CC’s capable drumming lays a solid foundation for Catalano’s vocals, which are as impassioned and carnal as his beefy guitar riffs. The sound earned ’em another festival slot last month, this time at Austin City Limits; if things keep up like they have been, this hurricane won’t stay little very long. littlehurricanemusic.com

Lavender Limoncello Lemon Drop

As the Little Italy Festa brings a taste of la dolce vita to San Diego this month (Oct. 9), it’s a good time to get familiar with an essential Italian sipper, limoncello. Made by steeping lemon peel with sugar and alcohol for three to six weeks, homemade limoncello is customarily served after dinner. Little Italy’s new Davanti Enoteca makes its limoncello the old-fashioned way, then combines it with fragrant lavender and fresh lemon juice for a twist on the classic lemon-drop martini. With its intense lemony flavor, the limoncello lends the drink a roundness you won’t find in the vodka-based version; it’s sweet but falls just shy of cloying. Buonissimo! 1655 India Street, 619-237-9606
