Santa Cruz is home to a number of venues, but one venue in particular has played host to more incredible shows during my time living in this town, and that is the Crepe Place. There are many figures who help run the show at The Crepe, but none are more prominent than Keith Petrocelli of Carry Yrself Home.
Having produced several local festivals over the year, and bookings shows running the gamut from Abe Vigoda to Judgment Day to Deer Tick to Wavves, Keith will be our first guest this upcoming Friday night, where he’ll sit down in our little treehouse in the mountains to discuss several upcoming CYH shows, talk about his history in the Santa Cruz local music scene, and just generally chill out.
After that, we’ll be featuring an interview with LA’s own HoneyHoney.
This folk-rock duo is getting set to tackle The Catalyst on Monday, August 16th, as they open for Xavier Rudd. As a hard-working touring band, be sure to tune in and listen to hear what this So. Cal. act has to say about Santa Cruz, their experiences on the road, and what challenges await them.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
For it’s my pleasure to inform you all that Oakland’s own Mouse Heaven will be our musical guests of the evening.
This bay area quartet’s take on folk music is at times haunting, but always engaging. They aren’t afraid to openly shift styles, going from slow-paced ballads to driving lo-fi fuzz rock in a matter of 2 to 3 songs. Also, Mouse Heaven were voted in to play at the Free For All festival in Los Angeles (on August 15th) where they’ll be playing alongside such talent as Akron/Family, Active Child and Langhorn Slim.
Tune in this Friday night for this AND MORE on The Rising Tide! Also, make sure to pick up this week’s edition of The Good Times to read their feature on this radio show, as seen here!
