Scorpions at Santa Barbara Bowl - October 6
50 years after a very young Rudolf Schenker founded the band in the profoundly provincial, post-war Hannover, the Scorpions remain a band that is able to attract masses of new fans at any given time. The Scorpions are once again at the peak of their creativity with their latest album. Tracks like the first single “We Built This House” are as contemporary as the sweeping “House Of Cards” (a guaranteed live hit). Also belonging in the category live hit is “Eye Of The Storm”, a track, that transports a notion of the unbelievable dynamic and joy of playing, characterizing the Scorpions’ stage performances.

Los Lobos - Jan. 24
The East-L.A.-bred Los Lobos are three-time Grammy winners who play a rootsy and soulful brand of rock 'n' roll influenced by Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B and traditional Mexican songs. Rolling Stone named their 1984 release How Will the Wolf Survive? one of the 500 greatest albums of all time and in 2013, the band celebrated 40 years together with the release of an acoustic live album, Disconnected In New York City. Though their debut album was titled Just Another Band from East L.A., they've repeatedly disproven that they are "just another" anything, and instead are a group that is consistently evolving artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots. $22.75.

Citizen Cope - Feb. 6
Citizen Cope: “When I was a kid, I was a listener,” says Clarence Greenwood, a.k.a. Citizen Cope. “Music was something coming out of a radio or off a record, something that made me feel these things I couldn’t explain. It was magical to me, and I thought it was something you had to be ordained with.” What’s clear when you listen to Cope’s own music now, years after he sat transfixed in front of his stereo speakers, is that he *is* ordained. Or touched. Or blessed. Or however you want to say it: The man has the gift. It’s never been more evident as on “Every Waking Moment,” his third album (second release for RCA).

Lewis Black at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center - Feb. 8
Lewis Black: Cantankerous comedian Lewis Black has worked audiences into almost as big of a frenzy on tour dates as the ones he works himself into. Lewis Black's comedy usually sets its sights on boneheaded political figures, but also includes jabs at society as well. He has appeared in numerous movies, performed half a dozen televised stand-up specials, and has had his own show on Comedy Central. Even with regular appearances on The Daily Show, a continuous stream of books being released, and upcoming movie roles, Lewis Black still finds times for stand-up tour dates in 2011. Lewis Black began his career as a playwright after graduating with a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from the Yale School of Drama.
