    More than a band, the Skatalites are an institution, an aggregation of top-notch musicians who didn't merely define the sound of Jamaica, but were the sound of Jamaica across the '50s and '60s. Frequently credited as the originators of ska -- the musical mash-up of calypso, Caribbean mento, R&B, and rock & roll that predated both reggae and rocksteady -- the Skatalites' various members came up through the nation's hotel bar scene of the late '50s, banding together as both an original group and the often uncredited backing band for artists/producers such as Prince Buster and Duke Reid. This is an updated version of the band led by singer Doreen Shaffer and saxophonist Lester Sterling

    L.A. Guns

    Although veterans of the Sunset Strip's hair metal scene, L.A. Guns are also known for being one of the two bands (along with Hollywood Rose) that merged in the mid-'80s to form Guns N' Roses. Formed in 1983, the group's first lineup included Tracii Guns and vocalist Axl Rose, the latter of whom eventually left to form his own group with childhood friend Izzy Stradlin. Rose and Guns decided to combine their two bands in 1985, thus creating the earliest incarnation of Guns N' Roses. Tracii Guns handled lead guitar duties for several months before being replaced by Slash; suddenly finding himself without a band, he bounced back by rejoining his old bandmates in L.A. Guns, who'd continued playing shows in his absence under the leadership of vocalist Paul Black.

    Motive CD Release Show with Scattered Guts, Autumn's End, SectaS, Ironkill and SirenHex

    Tonight's special show at Joe's Grotto will feature the CD release show for Motive! This thrash metal band from Phoenix has been shredding hard for a number of years now and their latest album is entitled Fight the World. They will five other great bands joining them this evening.

    Scattered Guts offers a fresh, yet familiar sound to the scene. Scattered Guts' music is littered with heavy riffs and powerful vocals. The band plays an aggressive style of thrash metal.

    The Valley lost a great metal band in 2013 when Autumn's End called it a day. Fortunately they rose from the ashes in a huge way and released a new EP Burn the Earth in 2017! The band has been led by lead vocalist and master on the axe Chris Cannella since 2003. He was formerly in N17, Mission 66 and Rorschach Test and has been considered a master clinician for years. The formula has always been the same; music full of integrity and without a shred of compromise that will take the listener deep into the darkness. This is metal that strives to break the generic characterization many bands of the same genre fall victim to for it is technical and full of melodies along with the brutal aggression. Be sure to check out their past releases, their first EP The Five Cycles of Discipline and three vicious full-length albums, Autumn's End, Act of Attrition and The Siren's Lament. The new line-up features longtime friends and former N17 bandmates Jason Kowalski (N17, Rorschach Test, Hogjaw) Tanner Crace (Sorxe, N17) and Rude-T Reilly (N17, 187 Altered Silence).

    SectaS is a band like no other. This trio's brand of high energy metal will invade your very soul. Reminiscent of early Megadeth meets Rush, SectaS' music is hard driving, yet melodic with a positive message behind every lyric. Ironkill formed in 2013 and released their first self-titled EP February 2018. They are in the process of recording a full-length album at this time. Opening the show is SirenHex from Los Angeles. 18+ show

    A Special Holiday Concert with Gypsy Soul

    Authentic and excellence are the words most often used to describe Gypsy Soul and its music. The duo’s multicultural heritage helps inform both their message and sound, attracting audiences with their soulful blend of roots, pop, blues, and jazz. Their wistful story began in Scotland when Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/USA) made a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art.

    Like its creators, Gypsy Soul’s music is much like fine fusion cuisine: Italian, Irish, South African, and Ukrainian to be precise. As with any work of art, their music is born from heartache, struggle, love, and determination infused with many textures, nuances, and flavors. Their message is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.

    Spendtime Palace / The Brazen Youth

    Spendtime Palace is a five-piece band from Costa Mesa with a timeless, emotional, gritty, yet earnest sound that stands up on its own. With serenading vocals, soaring melodies and multi- textured riffs, it is apparent why listeners are always keen for wanting more. In 2012 atop an abandoned building was were these eclectic musicians first came together. The band started as an instrumental group that played numerous loud and restless parties throughout their hometown. This recognition led them to be one of the most go-to bands in their area. It was in 2016 that a concatenation of life events led them to rename the band Spendtime Palace. Right after releasing their debut album Playdate along with “Lily Lee” and “Closed Doors,” keyboardist Michael (Toast) became a part of the band. This addition to the band induced a more exuberant sound, which lead to the creation of the Sonora EP. Title track “Sonora” gained instant recognition from the likes of Billboard, staring Stranger Things Finn Wolfhard and directed by Josh Ovalle. Spendtime Palace is set to release their second album with acclaimed producer Kyle Mullarky titled All Inclusive Romantic Getaway in early 2019.

    Straight No Chaser

    If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses…think again. Straight No Chaser are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. As original member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.”

    Front Country

    n a wood-paneled country dive bar in the shadow of the San Francisco skyline, Front Country forged a sound that lies somewhere between indie folk and Americana—a genre some might call “Roots Pop”: the past is discernible with a wink and a nod, and the future is here. Like a carpenter building a rocket ship, there is a whimsy to Front Country’s perspective that takes an active, imaginative listener to appreciate.

    Current Joys

    Current Joys is the enigmatic solo project of 25-year-old Henderson, Nevada-born songwriter Nicholas Rattigan. In addition to his minimal two-piece band with Jacob Rubeck, Surf Curse, Rattigan has been releasing a prolific catalog of heart-wrenching no wave ballads via Bandcamp under a handful of names (including The Nicholas Project and Tele/Visions), eventually choosing Current Joys as the permanent moniker, based on a song by folk-artist Liam the Younger of the same name. His newest release, A Different Age, documents the process of making art and the desire to create it sincerely in an era fraught with extreme irony, apathy, and nostalgia. Ripe with many of the emotions and conflicts that have influenced Rattigan’s songwriting in the past, A Different Age contains some of his most poetic lyrics and thoughtful arrangements to date.

    Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox

    To usher in the upcoming Twenty-Twenties, famed time-twisting musical collective Postmodern Jukebox will circumnavigate the globe in 2019 on their Welcome to the Twenties 2.0 Tour. The tour is meant to prepare the world for a new decade -- one that Postmodern Jukebox creator Scott Bradlee hopes will see a return to the style and craftsmanship that typified the music of past generations.
    < “Last time around the 'Twenties gave us Jazz, America's one true art form. Who knows what is possible in the 2020s?" says Bradlee. "One thing that is for sure is that there are a lot of folks that are tired of the clickbait headlines, mindless reality TV, and smartphone addiction that has only served to divide people in the last decade. We're using our small corner of the pop culture space to tell people to forget their troubles, and come join us for a night of celebrating true musical talent and timeless style - live and in real life."
