The Five Best Concerts in OC This Weekend

Categories: this weekend
The Dollyrots
The Dollyrots have taken musical elements many OC fans might remember about the 1990s (snotty punk vocals, ska rhythms) and made them more palatable to a new generation of ears. Piling record scratches on top of lead singer Kelly Ogden's sleek and highly-produced voice, the uber-melodic arrangements also feature anthemic choruses. Signed to Joan Jett's Blackheart label, rock n roll never sounded so clean. --Brandon Ferguson

Monterey Jazz Festival 55th Anniversary Tour

Segerstrom Center for the Arts

In 2012, the world's largest jazz festival celebrated its 55th anniversary--and jazz fanatics should take note, this year's dates are set for September 20-23, 2013, so put in that request for some vacation time soon. The Monterey Jazz Fest features more than 500 dixieland, bebop and jive artists in a nonstop two-day, three-night musical blowout. But for those who missed the massive jazz party, or just can't wait nine more months, a few talented performers stop by the Segerstrom Center while on this 55th Anniversary Tour. Come see the jazz stylings of Ambrose Akinmusire, DeeDee Bridgewater, Benny Green, Christian McBride, Lewis Nash, and Chris Potter and revel in just the smallest taste of one of the craziest, finger-snapping, toe-tapping parties of the year. --Erin DeWitt
