That record right there, Greater California's All the Colors, was declared OC Weekly's "Best of OC" best album of the past 12 months--sure, Greater California are from Long Beach, but we've considered that to be part of our coverage area for so long that even residents there get a little confused at times.
Full of shimmering, mature and fully realized pop like "It's Great" and the title track, it's a must-listen for anyone that loves the best of '60s and '70s rock (like the Byrds: the Next Generation). Your next opportunity to hear some of that album's fine tunes is sooner than you might think: tomorrow, at the Long Beach Museum of Art, for their latest "After Dark" event. Root for culture! They're playing, and it's also a chance to check out three new exhibitions: Sweet Subversives: Contemporary California Drawings, Surviving Hard Times: WPA Artists and 3313º Fahrenheit. It's from 7 to 10 p.m.; $10, free for members. Check out the flier after the jump for more details and a sneak preview of a cool image from one of the exhibitions.
