Cuca with Maskatesta and Riesgo de Contagio
1055 5th Avenue, San DiegoAugust 25th
Cuca is a Mexican rock & roll band from Guadalajara, Jalisco, that was formed in 1989 by musician and painter José Fors (vocals). Their first official concert according to the band was on February 14, 1990. Their first album, La Invasión de los Blátidos, set them apart from any other Mexican rock band, since the album contained irreverent, humorous, curse-word laden lyrics and aggressive sound, that at the time were not expected in Mexican music. "Cuca" is an apocope for cucaracha (cockroach) and "blátidos" means blattodea, which is the scientific name given to cockroachs.
Maskatesta born in 2002, minds found and illusions, we are inspired to
create a project of the music we love that unites us and the desire to fill a gap in the ska scene, the band gives its first performance at Deportivo the Zarco with own songs and a cover which never knew the author.
Riesgo De Contagio "Contagion Risk" is a Mexican rock group. Formed by Rafael "Fayo" and Alejandro "Gordo" brothers in Mexico City . They have gone through several member changes, especially guitarists.

Blood Sweat and Tears
Featuring Bo Bice
coming toAugust 26th
When Bobby Colomby assembled the first generation of Blood Sweat & Tears in 1967 he nor anyone else thought that 50 years later BS&T would still be a top touring band. Colomby's vision of a Jazz/Fusion rock Band with horns and also not afraid to take musical chances would change the music scene forever. Some of the greatest musicians in the world have passed through BS&T. 10 Grammy nominations winning 3 including Album of the Year beating out the Beatles Abby Road. 50 years of touring is a tribute to Colomby's vision of Great Musicians equal Great Music.
Blood Sweat & Tears hires the most talented musicians from around the world. At last count members of BS&T speak a
combined total of 9 different languages. Their music accreditations range from Doctorate of Music to just growing up in a family of music Royalty to just working hard to become a music Phnom. Members love to talk with fans after the show near the stage so feel free to approach them with any questions you may have.
"Blood, Sweat & Tears," Bice shouted several times during the night in tribute to the band, as if to remind the nearly full audience it was about the band and not him. But Bice did that far better by finding his niche in the group's music.

Lonestar has always set the bar high, but Never Enders exceeds expectations. "It's always a challenge," says Richie as they gather one quiet morning at The Band Cave. "But when we're writing, we always try to stay true to how we've done it in the past sonically and lyrically, while still looking to take what we do to new levels."
The exhilarating affirmations of the title track "Never Enders," the haunting reflection on time lost in "My Own Hometown," the emotional honesty of "Us," their playful,
grin- teasing riff on modern love in "I Want a Love" and their tribute to all the gorgeous lady bartenders they've known on "Boomerang" — each song on Never Enders mixes artful craft and the poetry of plain speech, each melody rings clear and all of it reminds us of how emotionally powerful country music can be.
"We come from an era of phenomenal songs," says Michael. "When we got our first record deal, people like Gretchen Peters and Mike Reid were writing amazing stuff. I think we just want to aspire to that level of songwriting
more than follow what's on the radio these days."
