Ventura County Fair 2015 - August 5-16
The Ventura County Fair began in 1875, when the primary focus of the fair was horse racing.

The tradition continues with the 140th Ventura County Fair, “A Country Fair with Ocean Air”. We look forward to making lasting memories with you and your family.

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.

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.

The Sweet at Canyon Club at Canyon Club - July 11
Legendary rock band Sweet (aka The Sweet) shot to the top of the charts in the 1970s, selling over forty million records with such hits as “Ballroom Blitz,” “Fox on the Run,” “Love is Like Oxygen,” “Little Willy,” “Blockbuster,” “Hellraiser,” “Action,” and many others. Even during that decade of excess, Sweet stood out with a charismatic stage presence and a relentless, innovative fusion of grinding hard rock and melodic vocal harmonies that was far ahead of its time.
