Date: Friday, Nov. 1
Artist: Craig Campbell
Cost: $15 in advance, $20 day of show
Location: The Birdie Bar
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: Long praised as a modern link to the traditional values of country’s past, singer-songwriter Craig Campbell has been waiting to release a new collection of music for five long years – and now that wait is finally over. Packed with all the down-home charm and up-town talent both fans and critics have come to love, Campbell’s patience has paid off in the form of seven diverse tracks – including the hit singles “See You Try” and “Outskirts of Heaven.” Taken as a whole, the project does more than just build off Campbell’s earlier success, it cements his status as a steady-handed star in the current era.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 2
Artist: Yachty By Nature
Cost: FREE
Location: The Toyota Yard
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: Yachty By Nature is a hot six-piece band that brings the finest in groovy soft yacht rock from the late ’70s and early ’80s. The group is a yachtical tribute to crowd-favorite artists like Michael McDonald, Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs, Steely Dan, Toto, Christopher Cross, The Eagle and so much more. Expert musicality, groove and improvisational flavor ignite these classic vinyl cuts – big vocals, big instrumental talent, two saxes, double jazz flute and nonstop fun.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 8
Artist: Through the Roots
Cost: FREE
Location: The Toyota Yard
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: From what was once a dream inspired by close friends, to humble beginnings filled with living room jams, late nights writing songs in the garage, backyard house parties and countless complaints from neighbors, San Diego-based reggae/rock band Through the Roots was born. In early 2008, Evan Hawkins and Taylor Boatwright met at a local guitar center, it was there that Hawkins shared his vision with Boatwright, which eventually led to the beginning of the band. They believed that Through the Roots would provide them with the perfect vehicle to spread their message and adopted a Cali reggae/rock concept. In late 2008, Through the Roots added Brady O’Rear to round out the group’s core. O’Rear brought his own musical tastes, complete with Hawaiian island reggae, and mixed them with those of Hawkins’s and Boatwright’s to give the band a broader range of ideas and influences to draw from. Through the Roots quickly moved from the streets and backyard shows to touring in 210 and soon hooked up for West Coast and national tours with some of the reggae/rock genres’ top headliners. The San Diego band eventually added Corrick Watson and Budda Foster from Los Angeles to the talented, five-man mix.

Date: Friday, Nov. 29
Artist: New Politics & The Mowgli’s
Cost: $20 online, $25 day of event
Location: The Toyota Yard
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: Consisting of Danish-born David Boyd and Soren Hansen as well as New York native Louis Vecchio, New Politics exploded onto the scene with their smash hit “Harlem,” earning more than 31 million Spotify streams and reaching the top 5 at Alternative Radio. New Politics has since released four studio albums featuring a slew of hit singles including “Everywhere I Go,” and “Tonight You’re Perfect,” securing major syncs on multiple trailers for Frozen, placements on America’s Got Talent, ESPN and commercial spots for the likes of Bud Light, Microsoft, Doritos and more. They’ve also accomplished the full late night circuit performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers and CONAN. The band has played sold-out shows around the world, touring with everyone from Pink and Fall Out Boy to Paramore, 30 Seconds to Mars, Panic! At the Disco, The Dirty Heads, Twenty-One Pilots and 311 to name a few. Their last album, Lost in Translation, features the single “One Of Us,” which reached no. 10 on the Alternative Radio chart and has accrued millions of streams.

The Mowgli’s are a quintessential California band, inspired by magnetism of San Francisco, the grind of Los Angeles and the serenity of the Big Sur Coast. Their songs are a joyous revival of rock ‘n’ roll, a twisting indie-rock dance and a heartfelt protest ballad. Sliding from indie pop to country and a host of genres in between, the band evokes modern artists such as Fun., Grouplove and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, whilst having their roots in the music of Neil Young, The Byrds, The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac. Part ‘60s Laurel Canyon, part ‘70s Venice Beach and part ’10s Silverlake, the band and the harmonies are held together by their message of universal love, peace and the belief that the highest form of consciousness is achieved by togetherness and unity. Uplifting, collaborative, joyous and communal, their songs are a walk through their live thus far. Their message is finding a foothold with fans from every walk of life, bringing people together under one roof to celebrate each other.

Date: Thursday, Dec. 5
Artist: Secondhand Serenade
Cost: $15 online, $18 day of event
Location: The Birdie Bar
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: Before the explosion of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, the music industry had not yet seen a forward-thinking artist rise from the internet to find success in the mainstream. But all of that changed in the form of a lone man and his guitar. The year was 2007 when the  no. 1 Myspace artist took the leap from the early days of social networking to the world of big box retail, releasing his first album commercially through a brand new record label. The artist was Secondhand Serenade, the label was Glassnote Records and the album was titled Awake. Fast forward a full decade and the team is getting back together. Not only is Secondhand Serenade, real name John Vesely, back on the Glassnote roster, but the album that started their relationship many moons ago is being brought back to life in the form of Awake: Remixed & Remastered, 10 Years & 10,000 Tears Later. While it may have been the first album for both the artist and the newly birthed record label, the fruits of their efforts together would not take long to see the light of day. Secondhand Serenade quickly shot to the forefront of the emo-pop movement, selling out tours, appearing on late night television and hitting the top of the radio charts along the way. Armed with a multi-platinum single “Fall For You”, a growing reputation as a world class live performer and his trusty acoustic guitar, the California-based musician became the face of a genre.

Date: Friday, Dec. 27
Artist: The Crystal Method
Cost: $15 online, $20 day of event
Location: The Toyota Yard
Age: All Ages
Time: 8 p.m.
Description: For more than two decades, The Crystal Method has remained at the forefront of the worldwide dance music industry as pioneers of the big beat genre, innovators of the ’90s electronica movement and current-day global ambassadors of the American electronic sound. Originally formed as a duo – alongside founding member Ken Jordan, who retired from the music business in 2016 – The Crystal Method today live and breathes as a solo act, with co-found Scott Kirklan at the helm. With this artistic reboot comes the next chapter in The Crystal Method timeline: “The Trip Home.”
