Sheryl Crow gets it – the beach life, that is. “All I wanna do is have some fun, until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard,” Crow sang on Sunday during a twilight set on the sand at Redondo Beach, just 15 miles south of the oceanfront Santa Monica Pier. One of the BeachLife Festival’s high-profile performers who first made waves toward prominence in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s, Crow shared top billing with Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots, 311, and the Steve Miller Band (who’s first hit was in 1968).
An eclectic beach-focused lineup of more than 55 top music artists across the spectrum of rock, indie, jam, reggae, and more has been announced for the 3rd edition of BeachLife Festival, Los Angeles County’s only coastal three-day immersive experience uniquely celebrating beach culture. Held May 13-15, 2022, Southern California’s premier live music, art, and culinary experience takes place on the picturesque waterfront in Redondo Beach, CA.
California’s ALO is elated to announce their 15th anniversary Tour d’Amour, a west coast jaunt that takes them through their home state as well as Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The band closed out their last full Tour d’Amour on March 7th, 2020 with a co-billed show at The Warfield with Leftover Salmon, which ended up being one of the last concerts in San Francisco before Covid shut down the concert business.
Paper Moon Presents is pleased to announce the Measure for Measure Concert Series - continuing this summer at the Bruns Amphitheater!

FANS and KEEN x Garcia Announce Full List of Artists and Conversations for Rainforest Benefit Concert: Protect the Tongass
FANS and KEEN x Garcia present the full list of artists invited to livestream on Earth Day to raise awareness about Alaska's Tongass National Forest — the largest temperate rainforest, and one of the most carbon-storing terrestrial ecosystems on Earth. The livestream will be a totally unique experience with artist performances coming from unique spaces and iconic venues across the country.
When ALO walked off stage at San Francisco’s historic Warfield Theatre on March 7th, 2020, little did they know that it would be one of the last shows together on stage for nearly a year. While it is still unsafe to hold shows at their favorite venues in California and beyond, the band will gather on private property in Northern California on Saturday February 27th for a special one-off - “BBQ d’Amour: Coming To You Live and Together With Love!” - a two-set "pay-what-you-want" live stream starting at 1pm PST.
In an effort to spread some cheer at the end of a hard year, Bay Area musician Jason Crosby safely gathered a cast of all-star musicians at his Sonoma County home to record a holiday show unlike any other.
The never before seen performance features Dan Lebowitz, Steve Adams and Ezra Lipp of California’s own Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO). Fans will be treated to an entirely new take on Vince Guaraldi’s classic, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, Billy Joel’s “Root Beer Rag” and more delightful surprises.
The soothing sounds of Zach Gill can be summed up in one word: Earworm. His new album Cocktail Yoga will paint a picture of 2020 inwardly, instrumentally, and with more than just the muted colors of an impressionist painting. Tracks like Playground in Your Soul answer back to his ALO song Dead Still Dance.
The third and final installment of WWG TV's debut season will air this coming Friday, April 10th and promises to highlight the inherent collaborative nature of the WinterWonderGrass community formally entitled, "Connection & Collaboration."
