ALO

ALO kicked off its Tour D’Amour XVI with a dandy of a show in Grass Valley, California, on March 12. The band did perform a quickly assembled house concert on the 11th as their scheduled tour openers on the 10th and 11th at a north shore Lake Tahoe venue were scrapped due to excessive winter weather. The Moore Brothers, Greg and Thom, opened the show.

Today, California rock band ALO share their highly anticipated, spirited ninth studio album Silver Saturdays out everywhere now, including a limited run of clear 180g vinyl, via Brushfire Records.

Johnson, a huge draw, especially in Santa Barbara, quickly sold out two nights at the 4500-seat Santa Barbara County Bowl last summer.

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).

The harmonious collective consciousness of music, lights, love, and sharing that is ALO’s Tour D’Amour is in underway as the band, with singer/songwriter Anna Moss along for most of it, is bounding from California town to town before winding up in early March in Oregon and Washington.

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.
