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.
Santa Clarita-based torch singer and YouTube superstar Sara Niemietz, who has guested on “House Blend” twice and was special guest vocalist at the Emmys’ Governor’s Ball last Sunday, has a brand-new EP out this week.
It’s her second, titled “Fountain and Vine,” and the six tracks showcase her vocal power and grace in an intimate musical setting. Sara’s released the first video from the EP, “Taxi Outside.”
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.
Meanwhile, you can watch a preview on Saturday night. “House Blend” will feature a special encore broadcast of Sara’s most recent show, accompanied by Snuffy Walden. That’s on SCVTV and on SCVHouseBlend.com Saturday at 10 p.m.
Residents throughout the city of Santa Clarita regularly take advantage of the miles of paved off-street trails available for walking, running and cycling safely without having to worry about the hazards posed by vehicle traffic.
Head Coach Annett Davis could not have asked for a better schedule in terms of preparing The Master's University women's volleyball team for the challenges posed by the Golden State Athletic Conference and, hopefully, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics nationals.
Raising the Curtain Foundation invites all Santa Clarita Valley students in grades 4-6 to participate in a free theater workshop on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts.
