What’s Up Next Week: August 11-17

I don’t have too many events listed on this week’s calendar. Here’s what I know. What am I missing?


From the 12th to the 17th Weaver’s Store is hosting its 1st Annual Archery Expo! Look for lots of specials in that department including 10% off all bows and crossbows.



The Dustbowl Revival plays at the Elk Creek Cafe at 5 p.m. Enjoy their write-up from Elk Creek’s facebook page:

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, CA-based folk-blues orchestra that merges old school gypsy rhythms with bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, jump blues and the hot swing of the 1930’s to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their raucous dance-inducing live sets, the Dustbowl Revival plays what some call hillbilly jazz—the original front porch rock n’ roll. Think Dylan and The Band in Newport meets Louis Armstrong in New Orleans meets Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes on the beaches of LA. It’s young people playing high-energy, vintage music and it’s all written and composed by howlin’ and stompin’ 24 year old frontman Zach Lupetin who first envisioned putting together a kind of roots supergroup when he moved from Chicago (his father is a blues harp virtuoso who sometimes sits in), to Michigan and then to sunny Los Angeles three years ago. The goal? Why, to make people feel good of course.

Growing from a small string band diligently playing local Southern California clubs (over ninety shows in the last two years), DBR is now a collective of over ten musicians with instrumentation that often includes tuba, trombone, clarinet, cornet, trumpet, mandolin, banjo, drums, guitars, double bass, harmonica and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck. The band’s spontaneous, participatory set-lists assure that every show is a little bit different.”
