Marujah dedicates, Quor drives, Tom Waits reissues, Supersonic Dragon Wagon riffs, and Gary Wilson rocks the most

And let’s not forget Rocket From the Crypt and The Dickies!

Marujah
Marujah

Originally based in Nashville, Marujah took home San Diego Music Awards for Best World Music Album twice in four years. Their sound is a cultural melting pot of street music and political commentary, sung in English and Spanish. Their album Henry 619, due October 31, was produced by John Avila from Oingo Boingo. “The album is dedicated to my father who passed this year, and to our great city San Diego, hence the name Henry 619,” says singer Comandante Kalavera.

Quor

Originally known as We Are Going To Be Awesome, Quor got its name around 2011 when singer-guitarist Brian Corn was driving down the PCH on a foggy night and spotted a giant liquor store sign glowing in the distance, with the “L” and the “I” blacked out. They have a new video streaming online for their recent track “Twiddle in the Middle.”

Tom Waits

This month, Tom Waits (a 1968 graduate of Chula Vista’s Hilltop High) is releasing 20th anniversary limited vinyl reissues of his 2002 albums Alice and Blood Money. New live renditions of five tracks per record will be available digitally in a digital deluxe variant. The live version of the Blood Money song “God’s Away On Business” from a 2008 Scotland concert, is streaming online, as is a concert version of the Alice track “Lost In The Harbour.”

Supersonic Dragon Wagon

Supersonic Dragon Wagon plays in-your-face rock and roll with heavy psychedelic stoner riffs. Their album Heavy Groovy Nasty was released in 2015. The band is working on a lyric video for their track “Sleeping Bridges” and a new single and video is online for “Riptide.”

Gary Wilson

The documentary film You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story, details the life of the eccentric indie-punk pioneer best known for his highly sought 1977 LP You Think You Really Know Me. Beck mentioned his name in 1996’s “Where It’s At” (“Passin’ the dutchie from coast to coast, like my man Gary Wilson rocks the most”). With a new album in progress called The Marshmallow Man, Wilson and his band The Blind Dates will share a bill with Rocket From the Crypt and The Dickies at Observatory North Park on October 29.
