The Shys, Steelwells, More Set for House of Blues Anaheim
Playing the House of Blues in Anaheim is a big deal for a national touring act, but for a local band, the opportunity to gig at one of Orange County's premier venues--nestled in Downtown Disney, no less--has to be even more of a treat.
A treat that on Thursday, October 29 will be enjoyed by these six bands: headliners the Shys, perennial favorites from South County; Yorba Linda's the Steelwells, pictured, who will be celebrating the release of the album they've been working on at Fullerton's Artisans Label; Tustin/Irvine's Yellow Red Sparks, whom Nate Jackson just caught a couple days ago; Santa Ana's Aushua, who have been touring the country rather relentlessly as of late; the Color Turning, currently based in Pasadena but with roots in OC; and the Rambles, formerly known as Fun Tree.
No word yet on ticket prices, but a similar show in July at the HOB--with the Jakes, the Union Line, Venus Infers, the New Limb, Rye Douglas Band and Great Glass Elevator--was $12.50, so probably around there. October 29 is also the date of the next KUCI-booked show at the Yost, and the day Huntington Beach's Moostache is opening up for Art Brut at the Glass House in Pomona--lots of local music in the offerings that night.
