Rootsy Americana singer-songwriter Pat Nason and his Regular Crew bandmates Ed Pausic, Sue Blue Bull and Deborah Houston Cloer just premiered a new video clip for “Everything’s Gonna Be Different,” a key track from the group’s “All the Time in the World” album.
The Crew shot the clip last year at Adams’ Pack Station in Arcadia. Gina Gores caught the raw footage and Jason Siler produced the audio and the final video edit.
Check out the new video, and visit CD Baby to score the song and the album.
On Sunday, the Santa Clarita Master Chorale and special guest vocalists will present two performances of “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.
The major work by contemporary Welsh composer Karl Jenkins tells the dramatic story of bravery, anguish, horror and hope, and the Chorale dedicates the performances at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to the honor and memory of Santa Clarita Valley military veterans.
The Chorale has invited top singers from local high schools and community choirs to join the chorus. Artistic Director Allan Robert Petker will introduce the production with a pre-concert talk starting at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $29, $22 and $15. Prices for seniors and students are $24, $17 and $11.
Veterans and active military can request two free tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call 661-362-5304 for tickets; call 661-254-8886 or visit http://www.scmasterchorale.org/ for more details.

Saturday night, SCVTV will feature Summer Meltdown in an encore broadcast of “House Blend,” hosted by yours truly.
Canyon High School’s Yes I Can program director and Summer Meltdown exec producer Bret Lieberman joined me in the studio to preview the 2015 Summer Meltdown last spring. We took a deep dive into the marathon festival’s colorful history, and talked about the challenges and rewards of guiding students with and without disabilities in producing and staging such an event.
That Summer Meltdown special preview airs at 10 Saturday night on Time-Warner Channel 20 in the SCV and AT&T U-verse Channel 99 in Los Angeles and Orange counties, and streams everywhere online at scvhouseblend.com.
