Friday, July 31  ·  Saliva

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Saliva

Probably one of the hardest things for an established rock band to do is to replace their lead singer, after all, your front-man is the face of the band, the leader so to speak. And, for the few acts who have successfully accomplished this daunting task (AC/DC, Van Halen, etc.), there are countless others that have failed. Upon hearing Saliva’s eighth studio album, Rise Up, you can now add the band to the ‘those who have succeeded’ category. Enter, new singer Bobby Amaru who has mellifluously replaced original singer Josey Scott after his exit in 2012). Bobby has joined up with longtime members Wayne Swinny (lead guitar, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Dave Novotny (bass, backing vocals), and Paul Crosby (drums). Together, the new line-up has delivered an album that manages to push the band’s sound into new areas, as well as retain the group’s trademark elements – including Saliva’s signature anthemic choruses and crushing riffs.

As evidenced by such standout tracks as the leadoff single/title track from Rise Up, Saliva’s reboot has certainly inspired the group, as the new material meets the high standard set by such stadium standards as “Click Click Boom” and “Ladies and Gentlemen.” “We made a great record,” continues Amaru. “It’s like groundhog day, kind of for us with it. Déjà vu. But the writing process I think went back to where the band felt they were at one time. Everyone really had input. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, we should do this because of this or that because of that.’ I think everybody really got to throw their heart and passion into it.” “I’d say that when you’re living out on the road, it’s kind of hard to write out there,” adds Novotny. “You don’t get much time alone to do it. But once you finally come off the road and get into the writing mode, you’re inspired by everything that happened out there. And we’ve been out for like two years in a row, just hitting it- being live and being with our fans. Everything just came at once. It all happened really fast. And we think it’s the best album we’ve done since probably the first album.

Friday, August 7  ·  Monster on Sunday / Shelley Segal

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Monster on Sunday

In the city that brought you Switchfoot and P.O.D., a new kind of band has emerged. A band that doesn’t bow to gods or masters. A band that won’t expect you to suspend your reason. A band that is carving out its own musical genre: atheist hard rock. I humbly introduce you to Monster On Sunday.

Formed in 2012, Monster On Sunday has been rocking the San Diego music scene, introducing a new wave of lyrical rationality to a thoroughly religious environment. So while worship groups are playing for morning service in the 800-some-odd churches in San Diego, Monster On Sunday will be kicking ass at the San Diego New Atheists meet-ups.

Steve and Tally Cass, the power duo behind the band, believe in the merits of science, the virtues of critical thinking, and consider “faith” to be sheer folly. And when they get to the Grammies they will not be thanking God. Instead, they will be playing shows and building the atheist community.

Influenced by bands like Bad Religion, Alice In Chains, and Black Sabbath, Monster On Sunday will leave your mind challenged and your soul… well, disproven.

More information on the event on the Monster On Sunday site.

Shelley Segal

“Mercurial voice and eclectic sound” (The Brag) genre defying singer-songwriter Shelley Segal creates a space for her listeners. A space for people to engage with ideas, to question and to reflect on the everyday – to see its layers, its depth, its meaning.

Desirous of all expressions, Shelley flirts with elements of jazz, folk, pop, blues, reggae and electronica, imparting a pure joy about music and its power. The spirited singer has been “creating a ripple effect with her melodic vocals, heartfelt passion, thought-provoking lyrics” (Leona Devaz, Weekend Notes) Shelley’s first single, folk protest song ‘Saved’ has become an anthem for grass-roots secular activists.

Collaborating with Adam Levy – guitarist for Norah Jones & Tracy Chapman – Shelley co-wrote and recorded ‘Little March’.

Shelley co-wrote and featured on ‘Chemistry’ – an award winning Drum & Bass track with Carl Cox.

Last year’s single, the reggae-inspired ‘Morocco’ from ‘An Easy Escape’ made a splash with coverage in the Australian National Press and the Moroccan World News.

“Truly an artist with international flair” (AU review) her powerful voice has taken her around Australia, Hong Kong, China, England and eight tours of the United States. She has performed to festival crowds of over 30,000 people.

An artist, an activist and an explicit storyteller, Shelley uses her music not only to express the way she sees the world, but to create the world that she wants to see.



Saturday, August 22  ·  Poncho Sanchez

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Poncho Sanchez

For more than three decades as both a leader and a sideman, conguero Poncho Sanchez has stirred up a fiery stew of straightahead jazz, gritty soul music, and infectious melodies and rhythms from a variety of Latin American and South American sources. His influences are numerous, but among the more prominent figures that inform his music are two of the primary architects of Latin jazz – conga drummer and composer Chano Pozo and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Sanchez pays tribute to these two titans on his new album, Chano y Dizzy!, his 25th recording as a bandleader on Concord Picante, set for release on September 27, 2011. For the first time, Sanchez and Francisco Torres, long time band member (trombone/vocals), join forces to produce the new album.



Saturday, August 29  ·  Skynyrd’s Innyrds with Artimus Pyle

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Skynyrd’s Innyrds

America’s Tribute to the Lynyrd Skynyrd Band. SKYNYRD’S INNYRDS have established themselves as the authentic tribute act to the original Lynyrd Skynyrd Band throughout Southern California, winning over audiences at every show. Playing classic Skynyrd songs has helped the band to develop a portal to the original band before the tragic October 20th, 1977 plane crash that took the lives of Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines and Dean Kilpatrick.When the members of SKYNYRD’S INNYRDS take the stage, it is a complete tribute to America’s greatest and hardest working band to this day. The tribute band meet people at each show with a Skynyrd story to tell and these people love Lynyrd Skynyrd so much that each person always says “Skynyrd is my band!”. So many people relate to the music of Skynyrd that we just had to put this project together. First of all, because we are all huge fans just like anyone and second because the music is very exciting to play. We of course love the reaction when we hit the note and look forward to spreading the gospel of Lynyrd Skynyrd to a venue near you.

Special Guest Artimus Pyle

Long considered the “wild man” of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Artimus Pyle’s powerful and distinctive double bass drumming helped define the legendary Skynyrd sound.

Artimus got his first real break at the Charlie Daniels band’s Volunteer Jam. His first recording lists — Artimus Pyle, percussion. Then with other work for the Marshall Tucker Band, Artimus became known as a powerful session drummer.

Using his connections with Charlie Daniels and Marshall Tucker, both acts that toured often with Skynyrd, Artimus met with Ronnie VanZant and Ed King at Studio One in Doraville, Georgia. The results of that meeting — Saturday Night Special — greatly impressed Ronnie. Artimus’ live debut with the band took place in Jacksonville’s Sgt Pepper’s Club in October 1974. The gig, a show to raise money and awareness for Jacksonville’s food bank, was hot Everyone remembers the band walking through the front door and into a crush of people that doubled the legal occupancy of the club. Playing under the hot lights in an over-packed club with an underpowered air conditioner made for a memorable night When Bob Burns left the band permanently following Skynyrd’s first European tour in December 197 4, Artimus quickly got the nod as Skynyrd’s new drummer.

The years Artimus played with Skynyrd were the years that solidified the legend behind the band. Quickly developing into one of the nation’s top touring draws with a grueling schedule of 300 shows a year, the constant work and touring paid off. By October 20, 1977, Skynyrds songs had become radio staples.

Johnny Oscam

Johnny Oskam first landed on the music scene in Southern California when he was invited to play on stage with Jonny Lang a month before his 20th birthday. This incredible honor began the snowball effect of what would become an avalanche of success in only three year’s time. Since then, Oskam and his extremely talented band have opened for artists such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Tab Benoit, Eric Burdon and Kim Wilson. Among these artists, Shawn Jones and Tab Benoit also have invited Johnny on stage to play a few songs. As time moves forward, Johnny Oskam and his band continue to gain attention from audiences and artists all over Southern California.

Johnny Oskam has been playing guitar since he was age 13. Since then, Johnny has demonstrated a virtuosic skill on the instrument, but there is a lot more to Johnny Oskam than just fancy leads and guitar playing. Behind Johnny’s guitar strings is the depth of an old soul that the world needs to hear, see and experience. His voice, guitar and songwriting skills all culminate in his powerful presence to bring to an audience this very soul, a soul that has grown up listening and feeling the passion and connection of the artists that preceded him in the journey of the blues. Artists such as Son House, B.B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as the latest generation of artists such as John Mayer, Derek Trucks, Tab Benoit, Matt Schofield, Philip Sayce, Doyle Bramhall II, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Jonny Lang, to name a few, have all been instrumental in the shaping of Johnny’s soul in a more profound way than just picking strings and playing notes. The essence of the blues, as it uniquely rings through the aforementioned artists’ music, rings through Oskam’s music as well.

Doors open at 7:00 pm
Marty Friedman

Presented by: Gear Gods

Marty Friedman

Marty Friedman began his career as a Shrapnel solo recording artist and later recruited a then 17 year old Jason Becker to form the yet unrivaled dual guitar unit, “Cacophony”, who have a strong influence on today’s top guitarists. Amassing worldwide acclaim as a guitar superstar, he came to the attention of Megadeth. Racking up sales of over 10 million records with Megadeth, Friedman continued to record solo records, often embarking on adventurous musical forays far removed from his work with Megadeth, including an album with Golden Globe winner Kitaro.

In a bold move, he left the legendary Megadeth to pursue new musical goals and has succeeded tremendously. Friedman’s many accomplishments make him currently the only musician to be a fixture in the top class of the Japanese domestic as well as international music scene.

Exmortis

Exmortis was formed in 1987 and released its first demo titled “Descent into Chaos” in July of 1988. With much praise by the underground its next venture was titled “Immortality’s End” which was released in 1989. This release brought them to black vinyl through CCG records out of England. This release also brought the band to another level and was a turning point for them into major league players such as Morbid Angel and Death. Many people in the underground were heavily following the bands every move. Exmortis went on to play many live shows with bands like Prime Evil, Ripping Corpse, Gorephobia, Dr. Shrinker, Deceased, Internal Void, and countless others.

Now is the time for the beginning of a new era with the release of “Resurrection… Book of the Dead”. Being released by the cult Xtreem Music, it’s a CD worth purchasing. If you remember Exmortis from the early days of death metal, then you will enjoy this classic recording set in modern times. The extreme brutality it presents is undoubtedly some of their best work to date and will again engrave itself with a strong hold in the death metal underground where they plan to stay.

Nukem

Formed on June 1st, 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Steve Brogden and bassist Don Lauder, and with the addition of drumming legend Norm Leggio and Cage guitarist Dave Garcia, Nukem is one of San Diego’s newest and most promising Thrash Metal acts to appear on the scene and they’re ready to destroy!

They are currently putting the final touches on their soon to be released demo and will start the writing process on the next wave of songs. All though the band is new to the scene, the members themselves are not. Each player is comes to this project with a massive of amount of experience, know-how, and perseverance. Nukem’s future is looking very promising and they’re ready to deliver the Thrash Metal payload. Now’s the time to Nukem All!

Friday, October 23  ·  Prong

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Prong

A show at the old Ritz in New York with New York hardcore legends Cro-Mags and German thrashers Destruction was what sealed a deal with Epic Records. “Signing with a major label was very much a matter of survival,” Victor explained to Britain’s Kerrang! magazine in 1990. “We aren’t high school kids living with our parents.” Survive and thrive was more like it for PRONG.

1990’s Beg To Differ became an instant genre classic. Songs like the epic title track or the tightly disciplined and sonically dynamic “Lost and Found” further carved out the band’s innovative deconstruction of metal’s excesses.

“We never saw ourselves as just a metal band,” stated Victor. “Our riffs, lyrics and ideas were minimal but conveyed everything we felt and everything we saw going on around us living in New York City in the 80’s. A lot of what I had to say was pretty reactionary. Disneyland hadn’t moved in yet.”

Over the course of their next three major label releases: Prove You Wrong, (1991) Cleansing (1994) and Rude Awakening (1996), PRONG charted an innovative course. It was actually the Whose Fist Is This Anyway?-EP that ushered in PRONG’s best-known era. The EP was comprised of five remixes from the Prove You Wrong album: introducing a heavier groove and experiments in electronics that gave rise to PRONG’s best known and best selling work: Cleansing. “We saw where we felt things in metal and hardcore could go and we rolled the dice a bit,” says Tommy of the band’s watershed release.

Saturday, October 24  ·  An Evening with Strunz & Farah

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Strunz & Farah

When people first hear the music of acoustic guitar duo Strunz & Farah, they are often struck by the startling virtuosity of the musicianship — the impossible speed, the clean execution, the lyricism, the uncannily perfect improvisations, and their trademark tandem harmonies. Guitar Player Magazine has praised them as “two of the planet’s most gifted acoustic guitarists” and have referred to their technical prowess as “maximum acoustic shred”.

Improvisation is vital to the duo’s music— each piece has a solo section where each player freely improvises, capturing the spirit of the moment. They are spectacular live, and their fresh improvisations make each performance completely unique. They have been in the vanguard of an influential and innovative international style of virtuoso acoustic guitar playing, in a genre perhaps best described as World Jazz.

Renowned world, and classical musicians they have recorded with include Dr L Subramaniam, Hayadeh, Ashish Khan, Jihad Racy, Edwin Colon Zayas, and others; from the jazz world, Stanley Clark and Hubert Laws have recorded with them. They performed and recorded often with Jackson Browne; they have also recorded with Joan Baez, Joan Armatrading, Gerardo Nuñez, and Rodrigo y Gabriela (who claim Strunz & Farah as a major influence). They have appeared on showbills with Miles Davis, George Benson, Kenny Loggins, and Chick Corea, among many others.



Saturday, October 31  ·  Loudness

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Loudness

Loudness is a Japan-based heavy metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Akira Takasaki and drummer Munetaka Higuchi. They were the first Japanese heavy metal act signed to a major label in the United States, releasing twenty-three studio albums (five in America) by the end of 2009 and reaching the Billboard Top 100 in their moment of maximum international popularity. Despite numerous changes in their roster, the band continued their activities during the 90s, finally reuniting the original line-up in 2000. On 30 November 2008 original drummer Munetaka Higuchi died from liver cancer at a hospital in Osaka at age 49. Loudness replaced him with Masayuki Suzuki and are still active to this day

Bitch

Bitch – The original leather S&M heavy metal band from the 1980’s on Metal Blade / Enigma Records

Sinners Rage

Sinners Rage is an all Original Power Metal Band from San Diego Ca. The musical stylings are reminiscent of the 80’s and early 90’s Metal with today’s brand of heavy assault. Although the music is very melodic, it has a heaviness that will grab the attention of their audience.

The guy’s will bang their heads, and the ladies will shake their hips. There is a fine line between sounding too commercial or too heavy. Sinners Rage has bridged the gap.



Monday, November 2  ·  Fates Warning

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Fates Warning

The legendary metal band Fates Warning began in the early 1980’s playing a traditional style of heavy metal. However, they quickly began to adopt a more technically proficient style influenced by Rush and are considered by many to be the first true prog-metal band.

While the band has subsequently moved in more melodic and ambient directions, they have remained a vibrant and well-respected cornerstone for the prog camp within the heavy metal strata.

Symbolic

Hailing from San Diego, California, Power/ProgMetal band Symbolic came together with one goal – to play their music the way they want to play it.

Refusing to follow trends or lower their standards, the individual members of Symbolic found their way through numerous years and various projects filled with both live shows and recording projects. With Scott Bruce on vocals, Steve Potts on guitar, Bobby Fernandez on bass, and Steve Elias on drums, Symbolic is gearing up with a new energy and excitement for what will be their fifth CD later this year.


Friday, December 18  ·  Machine Head

Doors open at 7:30 pm

Machine Head

Metal is the music of the outcast, the rebel and the steely-eyed foot soldier. Its principles, values and atavistic power have made life worth living for millions over the last four decades and its inherent artistry continues to ensure that declaring oneself a metalhead is an act of intense, unerring pride. But every worthwhile musical subculture needs its heroes; its standard bearers and pugilistic defenders. For the last 20 years, MACHINE HEAD have flown the flag for truth, integrity and creative desire in metal, starting with the earth-shattering prescience of 1994’s classic Burn My Eyes and continuing through a series of albums that consistently redefined the very notion of heaviness and music while upholding an invigorating lyrical narrative that has turned the band into one of the few in modern times that can boast an unbreakable connection with the hearts and minds of the metal faithful.



Saturday, December 19  ·  Gary Hoey – Ho Ho Hoey’s Rockin’ Holiday Tour

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Ho Ho Hoey

In 1995 the first Gary Ho Ho Hoey album was released. Hoey’s idea to put a rock edge on Christmas classics was inspired by his mother’s love for Christmas and growing up in Lowell MA with his 4 sisters. “With the last name, Hoey, I decided one day to record an album called Ho Ho Hoey and re-do some of my favorite Christmas classics with a rock guitar.” It was an instant hit at radio and sold over 350,000 copies and has been a staple at most rock stations around the country ever since. “I love doing the Ho Ho Hoey Rockin Holiday Tour every year because I get to give back and help folks with various charities and toy drives. It allows me to help communities and have some fun at the same time. And it’s Hoey’s loyal fan base and his connection with them that keeps him going. “I come out after every show to meet the fans,” says Hoey. “I enjoy the feedback and interaction.”
