THE JACK KEROUAC ESTATE AND KEROUAC @ 100 COMMITTEE
SHARE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR
CENTENNIAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
FOR FAMED NOVELIST, WRITER, POET AND ARTIST
JACK KEROUAC
TAKING PLACE IN HIS LOWELL, MA HOMETOWN
STARTING IN MARCH


EVENTS TO INCLUDE RETURN OF ORIGINAL
‘ON THE ROAD’ SCROLL
ON LOAN FROM THE JIM IRSAY COLLECTION, GUIDED BUS TOURS, MUSICAL EVENTS, READINGS, ART GALLERIES & MORE

To mark the centennial birthday anniversary of world-renowned “Beat Generation” pioneer, novelist, writer, poet and artist JACK KEROUAC, THE JACK KEROUAC ESTATE and the Kerouac @ 100 Committee have planned an array of events and happenings to take place in his Lowell, MA hometown starting in his birth month of March. See a full list of happenings and details below.

“March 12th, 2022 will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lowell, Massachusetts’ favorite native son, Jack Kerouac, and folks the world over are weighing in on the enduring legacy of his work,” states Jim Sampas, Literary Executor of the Estate of Jack Kerouac. “The celebration of his centennial this March in his hometown will include important artifacts, such as an exhibit of the original ‘On the Road’ scroll manuscript, and for the first time ever in one place, all the photographs of Kerouac taken by one of his dearest friends, Allen Ginsberg. There will be readings, film screenings, and musical performances, all paying tribute to one of the most important authors of our time, and the versatility and openness of Kerouac’s work.”

Kerouac has been praised and cited as an influence for several of the most well-known public figures in music, entertainment, literature, fashion, and politics ranging from President Barack Obama to David Bowie to Francis Ford Coppola to Hunter S. Thompson and many more. Kerouac was recently the inspiration for DIOR HOMME creative director Kim Jones’ 2022 fall show with a collection that nodded to the Beat Generation style and featured an 80-meter-long facsimile of Kerouac’s generation-defining literary classic ‘On The Road.’ See photos from the show in London via Vogue HERE.

The upcoming festivities will feature the return of a portion of the original 120-foot-long ‘On The Road’ scroll–which Time Magazine included as one of the best novels of the last 100 years—on loan from The Jim Irsay Collection as part of the exhibit ‘Visions of Kerouac’ which will be free to the public on Friday, March 18 at the Lowell National Historical Park’s Boott Cotton Mills Gallery. Further details are included below.

“The ‘On the Road’ scroll manuscript is one of the most important and fascinating manuscripts in American literary history,” proclaims Michael Millner (Director, UMass Lowell Kerouac Center). “American literature and American culture more broadly were never the same after ‘On the Road,’ and this is rare opportunity to experience the manuscript–and it is certainly an experience.”

DAVE NAVARRO AND BILLY MORRISON
OFFER THANKS FOR DECEMBER sold-out “ABOVE GROUND”
BENEFIT CONCERT; ORGANIZATION MAKES $50,000 DONATION TO MUSICARES®

IN ONGOING EFFORT TO
PROMOTE AWARENESS AND RAISE FUNDS
FOR THE TREATMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH

As Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and Billy Morrison (Billy Idol) look forward to the fourth “ABOVE GROUND” benefit concert later this year (date TBA), the guitarists and “ABOVE GROUND” co-founders want to thank the artists who supported the third event last month (December 20) at The Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, CA, the fans who attended and the team involved in putting together another successful benefit. Following the sold-out event, ABOVE GROUND made a $50,000 donation to MusiCares® (the leading music charity that acts as a safety net for the music community) in ongoing effort to promote awareness and raise funds for the treatment of mental health. (See full set list below.)

“When you are fortunate enough to do something you love, and simultaneously spread a positive message and raise much needed funds at the same time, it can never be called work,” Billy Morrison says. “Above Ground has become just such an event for Dave and I. Our third show exceeded all my expectations, both in terms of the incredible musical performances by our core band and all of our guests, and in the amount of love and support we got from our audience, our partners and our sponsors. I’m proud of what Above Ground is achieving in the mental health space and urge us all to keep the dialogue flowing. Roll on Above Ground 4!”

“This year‘s Above Ground event has to have been my favorite so far,” Dave Navarro says. “Not only were we able to create an environment to share our love of music with the people closest to us in our lives but we did it for such an important cause. Spreading awareness and raising funds in support of mental health makes these events so fulfilling for us. On a personal note, I never thought in 1 million years I would share the stage with Perry Farrell and Anthony Kiedis in the same night. A lot of healing took place on that stage as well. None of that would have happened had we not had the honor of participating in this annual event. Being in a position to offer support and help to others while simultaneously walking away enriched and full of gratitude is a very special, magical thing. I will never forget Above Ground 3 and cannot wait for Above Ground 4.”

Hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky with an art installation by Risk Rock, the evening featured performances of two musically/culturally seismic albums: Lou Reed’s Transformer (1972) and Sex Pistol’s Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols (1977). The all-star line-up–led by Navarro and Morrison–featured special guests (alphabetically) Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction), Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Courtney Taylor-Taylor (The Dandy Warhols), Dave Kushner (Velvet Revolver, Sons Of Anarchy), Dexter Holland (The Offspring), Donovan Leitch, Franky Perez, Jason Aalon Butler (Fever333), Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Josh Freese (The Offspring, A Perfect Circle, Danny Elfman), Laura Mace, Mark McGrath, Mickey Avalon, Otep, Perry And Etty Lau Farrell, Piggy D (Rob Zombie) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol).

The ABOVE GROUND 3 set list is as follows:

Lou Reed’s Transformer
“VICIOUS,” Corey Taylor
“ANDY’S CHEST,” Courtney Taylor-Taylor
“PERFECT DAY,” Billy Morrison
“HANGING AROUND,” Mark McGrath
“WALK ON THE WILD SIDE,” Anthony Kiedis
“MAKE UP,” Mickey Avalon
“WAGON WHEEL,” Laura Mace
“SATELLITE OF LOVE,” Perry and Etty Farrell
“NEW YORK TELEPHONE CONVERSATION,” Donovan Leitch
“I’M SO FREE,” Corey Taylor
“GOODNIGHT LADIES,” Franky Perez
**“SWEET JANE,” Billy Morrison

**Bonus track

Sex Pistols’ Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols
“HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN,” Corey Taylor
“BODIES,” Corey Taylor
“NO FEELINGS,” Mark McGrath
“LIAR,” Jason Aalon Butler
“PROBLEMS,” Billy Morrison
“SEVENTEEN,” Franky Perez
“SUBMISSION,” Jason Aalon Butler
“ANARCHY IN THE U.K.,” Perry and Etty Farrell
“NEW YORK,” Mark McGrath
“GOD SAVE THE QUEEN,” Dexter Holland
“PRETTY VACANT,” Dexter Holland
“EMI,” Billy Morrison/Mark McGrath

Here’s some critical feedback on ABOVE GROUND 3:

It doesn’t take long for the concert to begin when, almost quietly, Dave Navarro calls the first super-guest of the evening to the stage: and it’s none other than Anthony Kiedis. The amazement of the public, but also of us photographers placed at the foot of the stage, is tangible.  No one had any idea that the Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman had been invited to sing ‘Walk on the Wild Side,’ the most iconic track on Lou Reed’s album and career. The presence of Kiedis, the melancholy atmospheres of the song and the soft lights make the moment magnetic, at the end of which Kiedis and Navarro embrace and the latter reaches the microphone to remind everyone that they had not been on stage together for 25 years.

“With the second set the pace is definitely changed. The introspective and minimalist sounds of Transformer give way to the cheeky ones of the Sex Pistols. Corey Taylor is back, and after him also Perry Farrell, the ‘usual’ McGrath and a real stage animal like Jason Butler of Fever 333, who devours that same stage on the notes of ‘Submission.’”

“Nowadays, the mere fact that these kinds of events are still a reality should cheer us up. And all the better if they are linked to an important cause. Maximum support, therefore, to Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison. The world of rock needs people who believe in it. People like them.”

Rolling Stone Italy, 12/22/21

Navarro and Morrison took turns introducing vocalists for each of the songs throughout the evening. Corey Taylor led the evening off as he covered Lou Reed’s ‘Vicious.’ The next highlight and first surprise of the night came during ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ as Navarro welcomed Anthony Kiedis, the Red Hot Chili Pepper frontman and former bandmate. After giving Navarro a big hug, he brought life to the classic song that was easily the biggest hit off this iconic album. Perry Farrell and his wife Etty later joined the party on ‘Satellite Of Love.’”

“A confetti blast kicked off the second half of the show with Corey Taylor again on-stage, this time representing the Sex Pistols 1977 release, Never Mind The Bollocks. The punk rock vibe was alive and well as Mark McGrath, Jason Butler, Billy Morrison and Franky Perez all took turns covering songs from the album.”

“Together Navarro and Morrison have created a solid platform and great annual tradition.  Partnering with MusiCares, this benefit show has quickly proven itself and continues to improve with each iteration.”

Live Music Today , 12/22/21

“Billy Morrison blew the crowd away with his beautiful rendition of ‘Perfect Day,’ and we couldn’t have been happier as it is a favorite among Lou Reed fans.”

“Singer Franky Perez was the album closer and was dressed in his late-night crooner attire with fitted suit pants, button-up shirt, and undone tie. Perez sang “Goodnight, Ladies” and left the crowd and other musicians in utter shock of his immeasurable voice.”

“To bring it all home, Morrison invited all the musicians that had been on stage that night to join Mark McGrath in singing ‘EMI.’ It was a lovely evening, all in the name f helping others and knowing you and the people onstage were joining together to do good things and help people struggling with mental wellness.

Sometimes, big events don’t live up to the hype. On December 20th, Above Ground definitely lived up to all expectations. It was an event we won’t forget any time soon.”

Nashville Singer-Songwriter MACKENZIE GRANT Shares Video for Motivational Country Track “Putting Down Some Things”

Nashville-based singer, songwriter and classically trained pianist MACKENZIE GRANT has returned to music after a 15-year break with the upcoming release of her sophomore full-length album WONDER WORLD due March 18 via BlackBird Record Label. Produced and engineered by Phil Dubnick, the album was inspired by GRANT’s time away from music working as a school counserlor in a high-poverty and high-trauma preschool covering themes suchs as self-reckoning, feminine empowerment and overcoming negative mindsets.

WONDER WORLD features songs written by MACKENZIE plus a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Borderline.” The album’s first single is “Putting Down Some Things,” the video for which was premiered yesterday by Americana Highways. Beautifully written and sung by MACKENZIE, the song is a moving and infectious country song about self-renewal which Americana Highways praised, stating that “Grant’s songwriting is informed by witnessing a wave of these elements of the human experience, and the gentle easiness of her vocals helps to soothe the soul.” Watch the music video streaming below or HERE.

Putting Down Some Things” will be released digitally this Friday, January 7 and can be pre-saved at this link: https://linktr.ee/mackenziegrantmusic.

As a former counselor, I worked with children affected by poverty, marginalization, domestic violence, generational trauma–all things that were not their fault or theirs to carry as innocents,” shares GRANT. “I tried to foster resilience and self-compassion in them. When I took a break from this work, I found I was crippled by many of the mindsets they lived with on a daily basis: shame, self-blame, fear, criticism, etc. I knew I had to give the same allowance and self-compassion to myself that I had encouraged in them.”

She continues to share the meaning behind the track, stating that “‘Putting Down Some Things’ is born of the idea that the way so many of us treat ourselves, the mental self-degradation, is ultimately just our brain trying to stay safe and protected. But that’s the big lie; that we have to beat ourselves up in order to find motivation and growth. I had to start putting down that self-criticism because it no longer worked. We’re all connected in our suffering and with the events of the past couple of years, we’ve experienced it exponentially. But for most of us it’s our own inner voice doing the most damage. It’s accepting ourselves and giving our suffering compassion that is needed to heal us, individually and collectively.”

Text Description automatically generated with medium confidence

As a naturally gifted musician, GRANT has been writing and singing for as long as she can remember. A native of Syracuse, New York, and the daughter of two classically trained musicians, she effortlessly blends the clarity of her singing voice with the raw emotion in her lyrics. After three years at the University of Michigan, she transferred to Berklee in Boston, where she received positive feedback on her songwriting from her professors and peers alike. GRANT relocated to Nashville in 2000 after visiting the city with friends on spring break and discovering that it immediately felt like home.

Just before moving, she’d made an independent album that attracted the attention of a hit songwriter in Nashville, who invited her to write and record together if she ever came to town. That connection helped open the doors to the city’s songwriting community, as she developed an audience through playing writers rounds and releasing the 2006 album, The Laundry Room Glamour Hour. Around this same time, she also married and started a family, but gradually she became disillusioned with the music industry and her first marriage ended.

Now remarried and raising three children (a high schooler, a middle schooler, and a preschooler), she is once again using music as a way to connect with others and herself.

Industrial Rockers CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE Reveal Grotesque NSFW Music Video for New Single “Meek”

DT: DECEMBER 8, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

INDUSTRIAL ROCK OUTFIT
CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE
REVEAL GROTESQUE NSFW MUSIC VIDEO FOR LATEST SINGLE
“MEEK”
FOLLOWING REVOLVER MAGAZINE PREMIERE

WATCH HERE

Vice [n.] – 1) an immoral or evil habit or practice 2) a moral flaw or weakness 3) a minor or bad habit
Meek [adj.] – 1) quiet, gentle and easily imposed on; submissive 2) enduring in patience and without resentment 3) deficient in spirit and courage

Los Angeles industrial/hard rock outfit CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE deliver an uncompromising message of taking control of one’s vices in their recent single “Meek,” produced by Arthur Rizk (Ghostemane, Power Trip) which was released digitally on November 26. The band yesterday (December 7) premiered a shocking, NSFW music video for “Meek” via Revolver Magazine who described the song as “an industrialized hard-rock banger,” while stating the video “basically functions as a mini-horror movie with some awesome music soundtracking the scares.”

Directed by Steven Anthony Roe at Media City Studios in downtown L.A., the “Meek” music video shows each band member being forced to confront a terrifying manifestation of their vices, played by contortionist/pole dancer Brynn Route (Kat Von D, Lucha VaVOOM).

“Industrial music has always tried to push the envelope of shock and horror, both lyrically and visually,” CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE vocalist SVART states. “Contracult does the same, but with purpose and humility. The song ‘Meek’ is about the vulnerability of addiction and mental health with the lack of accountability for one’s actions within this mental state.”

He continues: “Since there is nothing more horrific than one’s own personal demons, the band and director Steven Roe wanted to present a narrative which visually displayed ours. You will see our friend and talented contortionist/dancer Brynn Route force us to enact our vices of novelty and overconsumption of food and alcohol in a vacant motel room. While the content is triggering, we hope it proves to be as equally provocative as it is grotesque. You’ve been warned…”

CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE was formed by SVART and guitarist CULTPRIT and includes BX on synth/backup vocals. The band—whom MetalSucks lauded as “your new favorite industrial band”—were originally signed to Roadrunner Records and in 2020 self-released two EP’s, A Cult of Opposition and Follow, in addition to being featured in The Pit’s mini-documentary series What Burns in the Soul discussing the relationship between BDSM subculture and heavy music.

The trio recently appeared at Aftershock Festival and Welcome To Rockville, where they first introduced recent singles “Plunge” and their cover of Bad Brains’Sacred Love”—both of which are set to be featured alongside “Meek” on their forthcoming debut full-length album due in summer 2022.

Following previous successful events in 2018 and 2019, while sitting out in 2020 due to Covid, the evening will celebrate the vinyl album as an art form, with the performance of two seminal albums in their entirety, while at the same time raising awareness and funds for the treatment of mental health. Throughout the event there will be an art installation from multi-talented fine artist, sculptor and graffiti pioneer RISK ROCK.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to MusiCares®, the leading music charity that acts as a safety net for the music community. “MusiCares has literally saved more than a few of our friends from dying,” share NAVARRO and MORRISON. “Their role cannot be overstated, and we have precious few organizations that actively step in to help people on the brink. On the frontline, finding and paying for beds in treatment, arranging therapy and counseling, and actually speaking up on a public level about the importance of mental health are all reasons why we continue to do what we can to draw attention to this subject.”

Navarro and Morrison, with an array of special guests, will perform two musically/culturally seismic albums: Lou Reed’s Transformer (1972) and Sex Pistol’s Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols (1977). As in previous years, they have kept trend of featuring one American artist and one British artist with former installations featuring Kings Of The Wild Frontier by Adam And The Ants and The Velvet Underground & Nico (2018) and David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and the Stooges’ self-titled debut album, on which the world was introduced to Iggy Pop (2019). Read a Q&A with Navarro and Morrison about the event, and why they chose these albums to perform, here.

Hollywood Rockers BUDDERSIDE Tackle Mental Health Issues in New Single “Too Far”

“Sick of the excuses
Everybody gives
And all the expectations
Not living up to them
I just want to be happy
Always something in the way
Don’t feel like living
One more day”
–BUDDERSIDE, “Too Far” Lyrics

Hollywood, CA rock outfit BUDDERSIDE share their latest single, “Too Far,” available today across all digital platforms. The track is taken from their upcoming summer 2022 record via oneRPM and was recorded with producer Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, Hollywood Undead). The song gives a harrowing look into what can happen when people are pushed to the edge and things go ‘’too far.” Its music video, filmed at several iconic locations on the famed Sunset Strip including the Whisky a-Go-Go and The Rainbow Bar & Grill, premiered yesterday (12/2) via antiMusic. Directed by Vicente Cordero (Industrial Films LA), it shares a visually graphic dramatization tackling mental health issues and triggers.

“We are all so close to the edge,” says vocalist Patrick Alan Stone. “Saying something kind could save a life. It’s easy to be reckless, but what we do and say can push people too far. Hollywood is the city of dreams, where they are born and die every day. I’ve seen good people murder over infidelity. I’ve lost my sister and my two closest friends to suicide over broken hearts, others to overdose–all just trying to ease the pain of a cruel world.”

“‘Too Far’ is about the struggle I’ve gone through with depression and suicidal thoughts after being f*cked over by people around me. I took that depression and turned it into rage to create a song that strips away all of the b.s. It’s a reminder to others to not push people too far, because they can snap and hurt themselves or even others. Just an honest cry for the world to do the right thing. If someone you know is in need of help, you’re not alone. Call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline (1-800-273-8255) or 911, there is help.”

BUDDERSIDE will join glam metal group L.A. Guns for two shows at Count’s Vamp’d Bar & Grill in Las Vegas: tonight, December 3 and tomorrow, December 4. Their set list will include singles from their recent album SPIRTUAL VIOLENCE, released earlier this year via Mötorhead Music/Silver Lining Music, along with previews of new material from their upcoming effort. The band appeared at Rocklahoma festival this year and previously have toured with the likes of Slayer, Anthrax and Motörhead in addition to appearing overseas at festivals including Wacken Open Air, Malmö Festival and on cruises (Motörhead’s Motörboat and Monsters Of Rock).

BUDDERSIDE was formed by STONE following his stint as vocalist of Adler’s Appetite, after receiving encouragement from the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead who he worked for as part of his infamous ‘road crew’ and was also a close friend. Lemmy signed them to his own label, Motörhead Music and they released their self-titled debut album in 2016.The group is rounded out by guitarists Sam “Bam” Koltun (Dorothy, Faster Pussycat) and Logan Nikolic, drummer Jeff Dewbray and bassist Gabe Maska—who is currently appearing as Kurt Cobain in the Las Vegas show ’27.’

Modern Classic Rock Trio THE BLACK MOODS Debut New Track “She Gets Out” from Third Album Due Spring 2022

DT: NOVEMBER 30, 2021

FM: KELLY WALSH, SRO PR

MODERN CLASSIC ROCK TRIO
THE BLACK MOODS
REVEAL DEBUT TRACK
“SHE GETS OUT”
FROM UPCOMING THIRD ALBUM DUE SPRING 2022
WITH NEW MUSIC VIDEO

WATCH HERE

THE BLACK MOODS—Tempe, Arizona-based modern classic rock trailblazers—are excitingly building on their success with “She Gets Out,” the newly released first track from their as-yet-untitled third full-length album due in spring 2022 (exact release TBA).

The song, with its mix of ringing electric and warm acoustic guitars, delivers a fresh, fiery update of a timeless sound and lyrically continues the storyline of the troubled character from the band’s Top 20 Billboard Active Rock single Sunshine” (also the title track from their most recent album released in 2020).

Watch the “She Gets Out” music video below or directly on YouTube HERE. Directed by Jeremy Simmons, it features concept scenes shot in Los Angeles with live and behind-the-scenes footage from the band’s return to the stage with a sold-out hometown show at The Marquee in Tempe this past May.

She Gets Out” was released last Friday, November 26 via Wit Hustle / The Orchard / Steelhorse Entertainment with an exclusive feature via Loudwire where the band also shared a list of their “Top 10 Best Sequel Songs.” Stream or download the single on all digital platforms here: https://orcd.co/shegetsout.

“‘She Gets Out,’ our newest song, is meant to be a continuation of the character from our last record ‘Sunshine,’” shares THE BLACK MOODS vocalist and guitarist JOSH KENNEDY. “In its title track, ‘Sunshine,’ she’s someone that’s struggling to deal with finding a way to change her life. With ‘She Gets Out,” she makes the decision to take a stand and make her life her own, no matter how scary or what the consequences might be.”

THE BLACK MOODS’ upcoming album was recorded at a makeshift home studio in the Ozarks (hometown of KENNEDY) with Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down)—who also produced their 2020 album SUNSHINE–and includes a remotely recorded track with legendary Grammy award-winning producer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, The Beatles) who was based in Canada.

SUNSHINE marked several career highlights for the trio despite being released amidst a global pandemic. It saw the band achieve a career highlight by achieving their first-ever Top 20 single, title track “Sunshine” (#16) as well as land three additional Top 30 singles (“Bad News” [#24], “Bella Donna” [#29] and “Whatcha Got[#30]). The band also released a fiery cover of one of their most esteemed musical icons–Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers—with the 1978 single, “I Need To Know,” which has received airplay on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio show.

Known for their engaging live performance, which AZ Central praised stating, They’re absolutely on fire when it comes to their brand of pure and unadulterated hard rock… you get a dynamic show whether its 5 people or 5,000,” THE BLACK MOODS have been seen on stages across the nation with acts including The Doors’ Robbie Krieger, Shinedown, Jane’s Addiction, Whitesnake, The Dead Daisies, Collective Soul and The Gin Blossoms as well as recently being featured at this year’s Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA.

SLEEPING DOGS
SHARE SET LIST FROM THEIR
RELEASE SHOW FOR DEBUT EP
‘SOMEWHERE OUT IN CALIFORNIA’
AND VISUALIZER FOR LATEST SINGLE “ENCINO

THE SOCAL OUTFIT REVEAL DETAILS ON
UPCOMING FULL-LENGTH ALBUM
DUE NEXT YEAR IN Q&A

Text, letter Description automatically generated

Southern California-based rock outfit SLEEPING DOGS, a spinoff project of the late 90’s group WANK, self-released their debut EP SOMEWHERE OUT IN CALIFORNIA on November 12, followed the next day by a record release show at the TIKI BAR in Costa Mesa (along with performances from the legendary Bow Wow Wow [“I Want Candy”], Ganda and Kevin Never Talks). The set list included their latest single “Encino which was teased with a brief compilation clip HERE.

The band–which consists of all original members of WANK including Bobby Amodeo (bass, vocals), Danny Walker (lead guitar), Higgins X-13 (guitar, ex-The Offspring) and Spider (drums) along with newly added keyboardist George Huges Jr. (Ziggy Marley)– have shared the set list from the show as seen featured above. In addition to songs from the EP, the band performed WANK favorites and previewed material from SLEEPING DOGS’ upcoming 2022 full-length album.

Read a Q&A with the band’s Bobby Amodeo and Danny Walker discussing the show and their upcoming plans here:

Congrats on releasing the EP and celebrating it with a performance. What were some of the highlights of the show?

WALKER: “Getting on stage with Bobby, Higgins, George, and Spider was awesome. As our intro music winded down, looking at each other knowing we were about to kick some ass with the new stuff was a nice moment. I loved playing the new ballads, ‘Rejected’ and ‘Tomorrow’s Gonna Suck,’ because they’ve got some juicy guitar solos and giant choruses. The biggest highlight for me was seeing our friends who came out to support and get their faces melted. We love our people.”

For fans out there wondering about a tour, do you have any plans for 2022 in the offing?

AMODEO: “We’d love to jump on some big shows with our friends Foo Fighters, Social Distortion, or the Offspring, but first we need to put the final touches on our full length. While we hammer that out, we’re going to play regionally and tighten up this Dogs live show. It’s something to behold.”

Also looking ahead to 2022, is there anything you can reveal about a full-length debut album from the band? 

WALKER: “It’s going to be dynamic. Like the song mix on our EP ‘Somewhere out in California,’ the rest of the tracks are diverse, each Sleeping Dogs song has its own signature, substance, and shape. And every one of them is rad.”

SOMEWHERE OUT IN CALIFORNIA was recorded with producer Paul Miner (New Found Glory, Agnostic Front, H2O) and is available now for streaming or download here: https://sleepingdogs.hearnow.com/somewhere-out-in-california. The EP includes the music video singles “Let’s Be Friends” and “No Mercy,” described by MXDWN as a “laid-back mid-tempo ska at its best, led by a slinky guitar lead from Walker. The upstrokes are never in much of a hurry, laying down an almost-funky groove for Amodeo to deliver the song’s message.”
