Stacy Clark
The Constellation Room
Indie songstress Stacy Clark knows how to turn on the charm. Her calming melodies and pop savvy form a sound that's both pleasant and youthful, which arguably explains her broad appeal. Landing in Southern California in 2004, the self-taught New York native got her start by braving open mic nights back East. After a national tour and a handful of international gigs, Clark became Orange County's adopted sweetheart. She's played endless local shows and opened for bands including Jack's Mannequin, Plain White T's and Kate Nash. Hoping to follow the success of her previous full-length album, the singer drums up excitement for her upcoming EP, Days Into Nights, with a month long residency at the Constellation Room.

Christopher Victorio/OC Weekly
From interviews with Chrissie Hynde to Shakira shaking things up in Anaheim here's the local music news we didn't cover.

  • An actual music review of Shakira's hip shaking at the Honda Center involves commentary on her weight ("thinner than usual") and how she "tore off pieces of clothing." Um... (Jezebel would probably approve of OC Weekly's benign slideshow and footage of her impromptu parking lot performance.)  [OCR]
