Wovenwar will play their CD release at Soma and have the after-party at their bar, Brick by Brick.
With the New Archaic on indefinite hiatus, Tolan Shaw has been writing songs with Jason Mraz for an upcoming collaborative project.

P.O.D. is seeking donations for crowd-funded acoustic album featuring reworked versions of their hits, as well as new songs, to be made available on a direct-to-fan platform via PledgeMusic.
The band formerly called As I Lay Dying, now sporting the somewhat less dramatic moniker Wovenwar and fronted by Shane Blay (Oh, Sleeper) in place of imprisoned singer Tim Lambesis, is now running Brick by Brick, where they’ll debut a new self-titled full-length on August 8. The show is at Soma, but Wovenwar promise to be hanging around the Brick after-party, along with host Ivy D’Muerta and DJ Buddha (free entry with Soma ticket stub, otherwise $5).
Also on August 8, Cult Vegas (nominated Best Alternative at last year’s San Diego Music Awards) will debut a new album at the Tin Can in Bankers Hill, on a bill that also includes Robin Hill and Trips.
Acoustic crooner Michael Tiernan is planning an all-ages outdoor mini-festival when he drops Inside Your Head (partially recorded at Jason Mraz’s studio) on August 17 at the Crossings in Carlsbad. “The Crossings is a golf course, [and] we’re transforming the lawn they usually use for weddings, that overlooks all of Carlsbad and the ocean, into a rad concert setting. People can bring beach chairs, blankets. Adults will be drinking beer and sipping wine, kids — mine included — will be running amuck and dancing around. Open air, great view, open seating, a VIP table section on the terrace, a drink included with admission, a popcorn machine for the kids, a photo booth, a sushi chef, plenty of booze, [and] a slider station.
“The show will feature a full band performing the whole album, start to finish, with a few of my favorite tracks from my previous albums,” says Tiernan. “The band is a mixture of guys who played on the album up in L.A. and my local guys here.” The event, which starts at 5 p.m., also features Lee Coulter and Dawn Mitschele.
