Right in front for Lagwagon at the Oakland Metro Opera House in Oakland, CA on 02/25/12 for “Messengers”. The guys were doing their best to rock the house even though they were plagued with sound problems. You can hear some of the problems here as Joey can’t hear himself and his mic feeds back a couple of times. Even though there were some problems I was still happy to be there. The show felt more like and old house concert instead of a fully produced show. A lot of fun.

ABOUT THE BANDS:

EOTO
“With no two shows alike, fans have come to expect the unexpected. Changes in mood, energy, and inspiration are reflected—in real-time—by rhythmic and melodic shifts in the music as EOTO makes their way through a plethora of tools and techniques. The duo moves effortlessly from choppy dubstep to whip-smart, four-on-the-floor house to psychedelic trip-hop. It’s a dance marathon, but everyone’s in it together.

MATERIALIZED
Materialized is an ongoing musical collaboration built on the core of a lifelong friendship between Grammy Award winning keyboardist (Mighty) Dave Pellicciaro and drummer Dale Fanning.
Based in Oakland, CA the band builds their energized sound on big beats and sonic scapes. To keep the music constantly growing they engage a revolving cast of talent for their live shows ranging from a powerhouse two-man match to trios, full band with a horn section, singers, video and dancers including their main associate, Cuban-born bassist Carlitos Del Puerto (Bruce Springsteen, Herbie Hancock).
Materialized has released their EP CD “Songs About Music” and are dropping three fresh singles on Feb 1st. Check these high octane adventures on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify and Pandora.

Love In The Circus
Love in the Circus features unique and seductive melodies that combine and blur the lines of electronica, rock, jazz and blues with sultry, edgy, museful hooks.
The group was formed by singer/bassist Leanna Rachel and producer/guitarist Chris Brickler. Curtis Cunningham joined the group on drums, Eric Hargett on keys/saxophone and Cha Chi on percussion/synths. The High Priestess and Leah Zeger add beautiful textures on the harp and violin, respectively.

Weekend will play shows in California in 2012.

Weekend (the band, not the vowel-impaired R&B singer) have announced a few shows in California in February:

02/01 – Oakland, CA – The New Parish (with The Soft Moon)
02/11 – San Diego, CA – The Loft at UCSD
02/12 – Los Angeles, CA – The Echo / Part-Time Punks
