In a week's time we'll be helping put on a double header of concerts down in the art village of Laguna Beach with our friends at Thalia Surf Shop and The WaxBall. The back to back nights will take place at the 'World Famous' Sandpiper Lounge, a dirty ol' watering hole that tends to unknowingly remind all who enter that Laguna was once a dirty hippy mecca (See: Orange Sunshine), a southern cousin to San Francisco, if you will. Although there's a few pockets of those holding onto their roots, or at least trying to keep it alive, it's been a mission of The WaxBall to keep the quiet streets 'un-quiet' with a monthly music showcase that we're stoked to be a part of this month.
First up, we're proud to present Ty Segall supported by Shannon Lay. Ty is a Laguna native and is releasing his new album this week titled 'Freedom's Goblin'. We couldn't be more stoked to have him play at Laguna's favorite dive.
Check out our latest Journal Jams 10, a precursor to the Ty Segall Show here on our Spotify Channel.
The following night we've got The Mattson 2 & Ray Barbee, a trio of instrumental musicians that absolutely melt minds with their talent, originality and vibe. Our own Brindles will DJ both nights with some tasty vinyl grooves.
