It’s Tuesday! Here are the latest and greatest shows happening tonight around the city.
Jason Mraz @ Fox Theatre
The way Jason Mraz sees it, everything in life boils down to people saying “yes”. “Yes inspires creativity. It’s what allows creativity to occur,” he says. “Yes is love. Yes is what gave us life. We’re all here because two people said yes.” Saying yes has given this singer, songwriter, musician, photographer, filmmaker, and social activist a life beyond his wildest dreams. Since getting his start 15 years ago performing in coffeehouses in his adopted city of San Diego, Mraz has brought his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound to rapt audiences around the world through his recordings, vibrant live performances, and philanthropic efforts. Along the way, he has earned platinum or multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries for his various releases, sold 48 million singles, made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, “I’m Yours,” racked up two Grammy Awards among six nominations, won a prestigious Hal David Songwriter Hall of Fame Award, performed in amphitheaters and arenas across the globe, and sold out such iconic venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena. Saying yes has been good to Jason Mraz.
Concert begins at 8 pm.
Sucre w/ The Honey Trees/Merriment @ Vinyl
Sucré is a musical group led by singer Stacy King, Produced by Jeremy Larson and Darren King. Stacy King, also known as “Sucré,” was born to sing. For proof of this, look no further than her debut solo record, “A Minor Bird.” Produced by Darren King And Jeremy Larson, it is an enchanting blend of orchestral chamber-pop and the intimacy of ’70s singer-songwriters. Stacy’s voice flawlessly weaves across beautiful landscapes of strings, horns, and percussion on each of the album’s 11 tracks.
Show starts at 8 pm. Tickets are $12.
Crane CD Release with Jacob & The Good People and Dave Roland @ Eddie’s Attic
Best described as crossover music, Crane has a sound that is all his own. Musical influences range across the board, but most prevalent in his current writing would be Soul, Reggae, R&B, and Pop. Hypothetically, you might find him on tour with Jack Johnson, G Love, The Dirty Heads, Allen Stone, or The Neighbourhood. For the last year, Crane has been performing solo and collecting his thoughts and efforts for the new direction of his music. In the past, Crane’s more Southern Rock / Blues sound seemed to spearhead the writings and recordings for the project. After the disassembly of the dedicated group that traveled as Crane for years, he’s decided to start back at square one; He and his acoustic guitar.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $8.
The band consists of Ty Segall, Charles Moothart, Emily Epstein, Mikal Cronin.
Doors open at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $17.
Black Cobra w/ Lo Pan @ 529
Southern Lord is proud to present the new opus from The Bay Area’s devastating duo BLACK COBRA. Formed by drummer Rafa Martinez (ex-16, ex-Acid King) and guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-Cavity), BLACK COBRA catapulted themselves onto the scene in 2001 with their ravenous, upbeat and ultimately unique style of punk/hardcore-fueled sludge metal. They were picked up almost immediately by indie At A Loss Recordings becoming the band’s label home for the release of their debut full-length, Bestial, and follow-up album, Feather And Stone. By 2009, with the band then virtually a household name to the tens of thousands of fans who’ve seen their flooring live performances over the years, BLACK COBRA signed with juggernaut Southern Lord Recordings for the release of Chronomega, the band’s most diverse material to date.
Show starts at 9:30 pm. Tickets are $12.
