TONIGHT: Second Week of OC Music Awards Showcases at Chain Reaction
The OC Music Awards showcases are at Chain Reaction in Anaheim tonight for a second and final week--they move to eVocal in Costa Mesa for couple Tuesdays starting next week.
Playing tonight? Those guys up there, who you have probably already figured out are called The Sequence. They have a pretty quality cover of "Disturbia" by Rihanna (will playing it tonight, in light of the Chris Brown situation, be seen as a supportive tribute or kind of tacky?), but it's sort of surprising how much they seem to be proud of it--featuring "Disturbia," their MySpace banner says of their album, as if it was like, y'know, their song. And not a mega-popular radio hit. Odd.
Also performing are The Jakes (who recently won a contest to open up for the Kings of Leon in Chicago), Duress, The Steelwells, Bridgetown (which I don't think is pronounced "Bridget own," though that would be funny) and headliners Years, who should have come up with a band name that wasn't so hard to Google. $10 at the door. Set times after the jump!
7:40 p.m.--The Steelwells
8:20 p.m.--The Jakes
9:40 p.m.--The Sequence
