Dreaming Ghosts and Parade of Horribles

  • Thursday, February 20, 2020, 8 p.m.
  • Bancroft, 9143 Campo Road, Spring Valley
  • 21+ / $5

Founded in 2009, Parade of Horribles is a hard rock-punk duo featuring Jason York of Civic Unrest (bass and vocals) and Chris Mazzola (drums). They say their songs are an “experimental sound disaster best described as a punk version of Primus.” To record One Mic Massacre: Impromptu Shenanigans, Abject Tomfoolery, and Overindulgent Hoopla, “We placed one Blue Spark condenser mic in a room and recorded it into a cell phone,” according to the band, which released the EP in 2018 and promoted it with a video for “Something For Someone.” Last year’s Perspectival EP features five short tracks, all between two and three minutes long and recorded by Tim Sams at Dire Sound Studio in Oceanside. Also appearing are fellow locals Angelshade, who say, “We are a group of like-minded individuals that assemble in secret, creating sonic symphonies to help awaken the sleepers and bring about the new age of reason. We gather in low lit taverns and houses of ill repute to share our stories and spread our message, for that is the place you will look for us.” The bill includes Dreaming Ghosts and Deathboys.

Fashion Jackson
Past Event

Fashion Jackson and Buddha Trixie

Based in Ocean Beach and founded in 2016, Fashion Jackson is an indie surf rock quartet which cites influences such as Prince, Mac Demarco, Michael Jackson, and the 1975. According to the band, “We draw from an eclectic array of influences ranging from R&B and soul to 80s pop, shoegaze, and garage rock.” Describing their sound as “elevator music you can twerk to,” their single “Honey” was released in 2017, taken from their debut EP, She’s Alright. Two more EPs soon followed, and a new single appeared in summer 2018, “Cinnamon Burn.” A Living Room Session videotaped last year with The Last Magna can be viewed on their Facebook page. Other scheduled locals on this lineup curated by Tim Pyles include Buddha Trixie, whose debut four-song EP Real was released in 2015, as well as Bobbo, Fever Machine, Super Bars, and Tommy Ragen.

Gregory Page Hovelian

Gregory Page Hovelian is back from his New Orleans debut at Folk Alliance International. Wait, Hovelian? Apparently, the occasional Rugburn recently took a trip to Armenia, where he met up with his father. In the sixties, Krikor Hovelian was a touring musician with the Martians, who were part of Hamburg, Germany’s multi-international beat-group scene. This visit seems to have had a ripple effect throughout Page’s life and career, as he returned to the U.S. and immediately added his dad’s name to his own, a change reflected across his extensive album discography as all the sleeves are being revised to accommodate the lengthy new moniker. Back when two names were enough, he played everywhere from London’s 02 Arena to international music festivals such as Woodford & Manly, opening for A-list acts like Bob Dylan, Leon Russell, Judy Collins, Chris Isaak, and chart-topping neighbor Jason Mraz, whose work Page has also produced. Page is the subject of a documentary film produced and released by the Snapshots Music and Arts Foundation, featuring concert footage shot in La Jolla at the Athenaeum. He announced plans to retire as a recording artist in October 2008, but was back in September 2010 with Once and for All, recorded by Mraz, with whom he subsequently embarked on a tour of Holland.

Rick Harchol
Past Event

Rick Harchol

Rick Harchol is a guitar player, songwriter, producer, arranger, and recording engineer who cofounded Outlaw Blood, a band once signed to Atco/Atlantic, which released their debut self-titled album. His band The Voices released a self-titled album on MCA Records, featuring five songs co-written by Harchol. His music has also been heard in programming seen on HBO, Discovery Channel, MTV, CMT, A&E, and other stations and networks. He landed 12 songs on a City of Peace record, The Morph Kings, as well as having seven of his tunes in the 2014 movie The Identical, starring Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, and Seth Green, with a cameo by Harchol. His website streams two of his tracks from the film’s soundtrack, “Everybody Knows It” and “Sumthen Boucha,” as well as catchy pop-flavored singles such as “Funk ‘N’ True Love,” “Ala Jmh,” and “A Little Honey.” More bluesy playable numbers include “Live Lightning,” “Surfslide,” “This Could Be Trouble,” and a short but steamy cover of “Red House” that slinks closer to Spirit’s serpentine version than the iconic Hendrix renditions. As a solo performer, “I create percussive and rhythm tracks using a loop pedal to build live parts, which create a full band sound without the need for excess players, volume, or space.”

The Hughes Brothers Band

The Hughes Brothers Band and Steeltoe

  • Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
  • Merrow, 1271 University Avenue, San Diego
  • 21+ / $5

Based in La Mesa, “The Hughes Brothers Band started in 2013 as a punk band called the Undesirables, as a way into the music scene and get our foot in the door, so to speak,” according to Sam and Zach Hughes. When the Undesirables split two years later, the brothers decided to form a more rocking band and worked for a while as a duo before recruiting longtime childhood friend and former Undesirables bassist Vinny Weeks for the Hughes Brothers Band. “We play classic rock with a little mixture of punk and metal thrown into it,” say the siblings, “along with some classic covers of metal and punk with a rock twist to it.” Known for their roaring, raspy, southern flair vocals, a self-titled EP was released last year featuring three original songs and one cover. Also on the bill will be Chula Vista–based thrash-punk band Steeltoe, fronted by Cuauhtemoc Uribe, who began writing songs during his 11 years in prison (1994–2005) on drug charges.
