Fans of live music, alternative rock, and the marvelous songwriting of Glen Phillips will have an evening to remember on March 7th at Belly Up in Solana Beach, California! What a great time to re-post my interview with front man and innovative writer Glen Phillips and offer the opportunity for a great show at the historical Belly Up! Some great names along with up and coming acts on their calendar. There is a wide range of genres for music lovers of all kinds.

Two particular shows have prompted me to finally get down the freeway to Solana Beach and  review Belly U's tradition, acoustics, and overall vibe. I am looking forward to seeing a show at this historic house of music in Southern California.  Something about Toad brings a pure sound, thoughtful lyrics, and a well constructed tempo that sings in harmony as well as any band from the style. The energy level flows through the audience for a thoroughly enjoyable concert that has a dynamic versatility lost to many bands today as the group transitions from upbeat rock to reflective ballads. Belly Up will be THE best place to be many nights of the year, and March 7th is no exception - when Toad the Wet Sprocket comes to town!

Toad the Wet Sprocket

Another HUGE thrill on this Monday as I write, for just having been visiting the new Soul Asylum website to find that these guitar heroes from Minnesota are making their way to the west coast in 2013! So I will be assured to be found in Solana Beach once again on April 4th to hop onto that "Runaway Train"

much further into the rich tapestry of discography that is the Asylum. Everything from "String of Pearls" to the excellent new tunes of the past two albums including "Delayed Reaction" , lot of to love about this group! By the way (Dave Pirner tears it up live!) Be there! This is going to be one of the best Southern California rock shows of 2013, don't miss out!

If you have not seen these two acts, do yourself a pleasant and audible favor and direct your mouse right over here (and take a look at the complete line-up on the official Belly Up website:
