I just found out that John Batdorf, long an associate of Brent Mydland, is playing a show in the Los Angeles area. This from his website:

I am thrilled to be opening a new series in the valley. This show kicks off the new series produced by Ron Sarfaty. Please come out and support Ron and myself so this can become a regular event!

It's my local mall, and the space is a big, former Barnes and Noble store that they want to do some funky things in. I was just there, and I'm sure this is gonna have a Living Room Concert kind of vibe to it. If you're around the San Fernando Valley that night, I'll see you there!
Attention all you Dead Head Blues fans. There is a GREAT lineup of blues guitarists playing in Ventura California at Mission Park on Sunday 22 September as part of the BBQ and Blues Day of the California Beer Festival. My old next door neighbor from Ojai Mr. Robben Ford and two awesome ladies: From Texas it's Carolyn Wonderland and from Belgrade it's Amsterdam resident Ana Popovic.
Many of you may have already seen Robben Ford with his own band or backing up John Mayall on tour or playing with Phil Lesh & Friends some years ago. But if you have not seen Carolyn Wonderland or Ana Popovic yet, well, you are in for a real treat! These two ladies are guaranteed to knock your blues socks off!
So if you're a resident of the Los Angeles-Ventura-Santa Barbara-San Luis Obispo counties, and you're a fan of top-notch live blues guitar, you can't go wrong with this coming Sunday afternoon show in Downtown Ventura California.
I will see you there!
it's a fundraiser for the Rex Foundation too, so come on down!
This from Paradise Waits band in Chicago:
"We're thrilled to announce that we will be joined by former Dark Star Orchestra bassist Kevin Rosen for our upcoming shows! Come welcome Kevin to the PW family :) "
These guys opened strong for a really good show by Steve Winwood last year at the Fillmore. Winwood's voice is still one of the great ones, up there with Jerry, Bob, Greg Allman, Muddy, Toots, Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Lennon, Jagger and Ronnie Van Zant. And the guy is just so musical, long guitar solos that never ran out of ideas and of course his keyboard playing has always been among the best. "Can't Find My Way Home" was fucking amazing. But I was writing on new bands so...The Wood Brothers opened and played original tunes with a strong American roots feeling. I would definitely see them again. http://www.thewoodbros.com
is there anywhere in this forum to look for rideshares for bands coming around?

A small indie label started by Adam Moult of the Nashville, TN band Bad Cop has VERY quickly grown into a staple record label of a lot of the underground punk/rock world in that state. Bad Cop is, of course, on the label, but you can also find releases from Useless Eaters, Turbo Fruits, Natural Child, Ranch Ghost, Ghost Dance, Majestico, Little Viking, Western Medication, Promised Land, Fancytramp, Magic Milk, and more.
