Let’s stay warm dancing to our favorite bands! ~

I loved hearing First Aid Kit at the Fox Theatre in Oakland last week. Boy can those girls sing!

Another lady with an exquisite voice and rockin’ band is Lauren from Royal Jelly Jive. They hit the road last week with gigs in SoCal, and now they’re in Arizona. You can check them out tonight in Scottsdale at the Rogue Bar, tomorrow in Phoenix at Cactus Jacks, Thursday at Creek Side Inn in Santa Barbara and at Genghis Cohen on Saturday, Nov. 22nd in Los Angeles!

Dgiin are supporting the French American Charter School with their Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration dinner show on Friday, Nov. 21st at Showcase Cafe in the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds. You can buy tickets here: http://srfacs.org

Our good friends Delhi 2 Dublin are back in the States and are at Zanzibar in Los Angeles tonight, and then at 755 After Dark (Aubergine) in Sebastopol on Saturday night as the headliner for Little Tribe Foundation’s fundraiser. Other acts on the line-up include Zack Darling, Horses Heaven, Hoytus & the Cup of Sunshine Band, Trinity Rayne and more….. Little Tribe is a non profit supporting children in need. Come and support this awesome cause. It’s a good idea to get your tickets now as this is bound to sell out. https://www.facebook.com/events/552719561524704/

Junk Parlor take it north for a show at Shanachie Pub in Willits on Saturday, Nov. 22nd. Be ready to dance the night away with these lads.
