2 Door Cinema

Two Door Cinema Club Dec. 5th

Last year I fell head over heels for Two Door Cinema Club’s album, Tourist History. Loaded with the electro-pop dance grooves I was looking for in a band, Tourist History was high energy and infectious, making it impossible to not want to groove along. Needless to say it set the bar pretty high for a followup album. Now available, Beacon expands our expectations of the musical range of TDCC.  Find out for yourself when Two Door Cinema Club plays The Catalyst in downtown Santa Cruz Wednesday, December 5th.  Showtime is 8 pm.

They’re also part of “Not So Silent Night” with Jack Black, Metric, The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, The Gaslight Anthem Friday, December 7th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland.  Bursting with music, this show begins at 6 pm and will sell out soon.

The Rolling Stones at 50

Celebrating 50 years as a band, The Rolling Stones played an incredible night at London’s O2. Bringing out favorites from five decades, they proved to be still able to rock it. Here’s a sample: an extended version of “Midnight Rambler” featuring former 70’s Stones lead guitarist Mick Taylor.

Punch Brothers

Punch Brothers Fri Nov 30th

From New York City, The Punch Brothers with Chris Thile will be in concert Friday, November 30, 2012 at 8pm at the  Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz, CA. Rooted in the rhythmic structure of bluegrass, these four virtuosic musicians take their original acoustic music and songs to an edgier, energetic fusion with elements of classical music, pop, indie-rock, and jazz. The band features Chris Thile (mandolin and vocals), who recently received a no-strings $500,000 MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship, giving him the freedom to pursue whatever he wants for the next five years! The other band members include Gabe Witcher (fiddle), Noam Pikelny (banjo), Chris Eldridge (guitar), and Paul Kowert (bass).
