-Mexi-Cali blues rockers Los Lobos aren't coming to Monterey County but they'll be close: On Saturday, Sept. 22, the internationally-known outfit will play The Green at Peppertree Ranch in Hollister—presented by Guerra Family Cellars. Red Beans & Rice open for David Hidalgo and his crew.
-The following Saturday, P.G. teen phenoms Mozzo Kush will open the REEL ROCK 7 film fest at the Henry Miller Library with a 45-minute set.
-Ridiculously talented singer-songwriter Nico Georis shot me an email today with a link to download the title track, "Rogerson Noble", from his band Sky Country's forthcoming album The History of the World and Other Facts, According to Rogerson Noble. The tune is far out in a very good way. Think Frank Zappa meets The Beatle's "Revolution #9" and top that off with sprinklings of Beck's Stereopathetic Soulmanure.
-Back on planet Earth, honeymoon's Christina Bailey's Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her solo debut EP, Love & War, ends Sept. 21. She's less than $1,000 from reaching her goal. It's important to support local artists, especially when their as talented as Bailey. Make it happen.
-Tomorrow night Walter Rose and special guest Alex Ramirez perform at The Lobby at the Golden State Theatre at 7:30pm—on Saturday, Matt the Electrician plays. Also tomorrow, across town at Cannery Row Brewing Co., LIVE from the BASSment kicks off at 9pm with another installment of impromptu bliss.
-Check out this Thursday's jam-packed edition of the Weekly for a lot of Jazz Fest goodies and previews of The Soft White Sixties at The Lobby at the Golden State Theatre, Ben Gibbard at Henry Miller Library and legends Crosby, Stills and Nash at the Sunset Center.
“When did I decide to go into business? Well, it wasn't a business, when I decided. It was simply a need to sing," David Crosby said.
