There's something about summertime that puts the folks over here at Heard Mentality
in a really giving mood. And since few things go together like warm weather and free music, we're offering OC Weekly
readers a brand new loud, local concert series called Plugged Into Local
-- filled with the best bands this county has to offer.
Starting on Wednesday July 25, Heard Mentality launches this free, monthly band showcase that will be popping up at bars, clubs and other venues all over OC. The first installment features OC punk's diabolical heavy-hitter Jack Grisham
fame) tearing up the stage with his new band The Manic Low
at the Constellation Room
in Santa Ana.
Having just released their debut album Songs For An Up Day
on Moonlight Graham Records,
the Huntington Beach
trio fuses some shimmering, 60s-tinged good-time energy with Grisham's trademark punk delivery, immortal energy and a slice of pop energy for good measure. And you'll be the first to see since it's their first show before their U.S. tour. The show is free and RSVP only, find out all the details after the jump!
The show also sports an in-your-face undercard featuring two Fullerton
acts, punk rock stalwarts Sederra
and the searing, Warped Tour
-tested alt rock of Neo Geo
. Aside from offering up a one of our local music legends at one of OC's best live music venues, we're also looking forward to seeing a packed out audience at the Constellation Room experience several different pedigrees of punk on one stage. Did we mention it's free?
All you have to do to get in is RSVP at PIL's web page and we'll get you on the list. Space is limited so get on this ASAP! Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 9p.m. with Neo Geo followed by Sederra and headliners the Manic Low.
