It’s “Rock Universe” night Friday at Vincenzo’s on Lyons Avenue in Newhall. The show’s theme is prog, funk and folk, and the lineup includes local whiz-kid guitarist Roger Atlas.
Roger and his keyboard-playing younger brother Dennis blew us away on SCVTV’s “House Blend” a few years ago. Roger’s musical progression since then has been remarkable.
Also on the bill – local bands Progworld and Fortune Blues. Showtime is 8 p.m. and there’s no cover charge. Call Vincenzo’s at 661-259-6733 for more info.

She’s throwing a CD release party at Genghis Cohen’s on Fairfax in Hollywood Friday night. Snuffy Walden, her favorite guitarist, is backing her up.
And you can catch Sara live on Monday night when she fronts the band Work in Progress at the Maui Sugar Mill Saloon in Tarzana. Visit her website at saraniemietz.com for all the details.
