What's Happening in SLO County this week? 

Seems like there's no "off season" for fun & events on the Central Coast, although the summer sure adds a ton more outdoor events.   My hat goes off to all the indoor venues still making it happen year round (you know who you are!).  

This weekend starts with a VERY robust Friday evening.  A few great options: 

SLO Brew has a couple great shows this weekend.  Randy Rogers is there on Friday.  If you didn't already get your tickets, you're out of luck - it's sold out!  But fear not - if you act quickly, you can still make it down to Boo Boo Records & grab some tix for what will surely be an epic show on Saturday: the Budos Band!  Our friends Mailk and Manuel will be spinning a col vinyl set to warm you up. 

Heads up on another couple of shows coming up soon: 

  • Next Friday, Trombone Shorty will be at the PAC.  I've seen him 3 times live (Zongo even opened up for him a couple years back at SLO Brew), and each time he killed it!  Tickets are running thin, but there are still a few left, so grab some & buckle up for an awesome night! 
  • On 2/7 Saturday you'll want to be at SLO Brew to celebrate Cali Carnaval!  One week in front of the Brazilian Carnaval, Zongo All-Stars and Samba Loca team up with special guests, dancers, and more.  

That's it for now.  Have fun out there & be safe!
