Buckcherry - Feb. 18
Buckcherry aren’t afraid to push buttons. This is the band that vaulted to stardom on the dangerous and dirty fuel of the 1999 smash “Lit Up” from their gold-selling self-titled debut. Every time it plays to this day, somebody’s clothes come off—and that’s a fact. These are also the boys behind the rousing, raucous, and raunchy “Crazy Bitch” off 2006’s 15, which turned them into a multi-platinum phenomenon and a household name.

Fueled by mega-hits including "Hey Jealousy," "Found Out About You" and "Til I Hear It From You," Gin Blossoms completed the classic crossover from college-circuit heroes to multi-platinum album sellers. Their initial releases on A&M Records included Up and Crumbling and the multi-platinum selling New Miserable Experience, featuring the single, "Hey Jealousy" which peaked at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100. Four more singles followed. Congratulations I'm Sorry, which was released in 1996, was the Blossom's final original album of the decade bringing them two more hits …

Y & T Band - April 14
Before Motley Crue, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the early 1970s, little did they know they would become the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the biggest acts of the 80s became popular opening for Y&T. Likewise, Y&T, for years remained the most requested supporting act on the hard rock road, touring with rock icons including Ozzy Oxbourne, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and more.

Puddle Of Mudd - April 22
Puddle Of Mudd has sold over seven million albums and had a string of #1 rock hits in the United States. Songs include "Blurry," "She Hates Me," "Away From Me," "Psycho," "Famous," "Control" "Drift & Die," and more. Should be a rockin' night!

An overview of Fillmore citrus fields.

Introduction
Fillmore is a city in Ventura County, California, United States. The population was 13,643 at the 2000 census.

History
"Fillmore, a sleepy little town nestled in the upper reaches of the Santa Clara River Valley, typifies an idealistic aspect of life that is rapidly disappearing from the California scene. Once a part of the gigantic Sespe or San Cayetano land grant, issued in 1833 by Governor Jose Figueroa to Antonio Carrillo, the area in and around present-day Fillmore is served by a parochial complex under the patronage of Saint Francis." –Delegation of the Roman Catholic Archdiocesan Board of Consultors, October 1971 Fillmore was founded in 1888 by Jerome A. Fillmore, General Superintendent of the Southern Pacific Railroad. On August 1, 1888, a street map of the town of Fillmore was recorded in the Ventura County Courthouse. By 1900 Fillmore had a population of 150. The first schoolhouse was built in 1874. It was 20 by 30 feet with three windows on each side. The first graduating class of Fillmore High School was in 1911 with four students. 1889 saw the first commercial orange grove planted in Fillmore. During the “orange rush” of 1897, the Fillmore Citrus Fruit Association was formed and would eventually become Sunkist Growers. Fillmore’s first orange packing house was built at the corner of Sespe Avenue and A Street, on property purchased for $50 (sources: Fillmore Chamber of Commerce and Heritage Valley Association). Fillmore still has a kind of small-town atmosphere which is becoming increasingly rare in suburbanized Ventura County. The farms of nearby Bardsdale, as well as the town's relatively remote location away from the sprawl of the West and South parts of the County, have helped preserved this atmosphere.

Geography and Description
Fillmore is located at 34°24′5″N, 118°55′4″W (34.401276, -118.917749)[1]. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 7.2 km² (2.8 mi²), all land. Fillmore is a small valley town in Northern Ventura County just below the San Cayetano Mountain peak in the Los Padres National Forest. Fillmore is located in the Santa Clara River Valley. Fillmore is also located within an historic Ventura County agricultural and tree-farming belt. Educational facilities include one high school, one middle school, and 5 elementary schools. Sespe Condor Sanctuary, where the critically endangered California Condor are recovering, lies to the north. The nearby Sespe Creek is a tributary of the Santa Clara River. It is primarily served by Highways 101, 126 and Highway 23.

Cityscape
Fillmore has classic "turn of the century" downtown architecture, a one-screen theatre, an historic train depot, - the Fillmore and Western Railway - a much photographed city hall, and many unique shops and businesses, including a local winery operation. It is home to Elkins Ranch Golf Course. The small farming community of Bardsdale is located about three miles from Fillmore, directly across the Santa Clara River. Also located nearby are a fish hatchery and the Sespe Creek and Sespe Wilderness, home to the California Condor Sespe sanctuary. Because of its preserved downtown, Fillmore is a popular filming location for television and movies. The January 4, 2007 episode of CSI entitled Leaving Las Vegas prominently featured old-town Fillmore as the fictional town of "Larkston, Nevada". Parts of the television series Jericho is also filmed there.

Industry and Economy
Fillmore's economy is still largely driven by agriculture. Most agricultural industry in the Fillmore area is related to orange, lemon, avocado orchard farming and packing and, more recently, specimen tree farming. To a lesser extent, row crop farming and small industry and assembly are also present in and near Fillmore and in other parts of the Santa Clara Valley. The single largest employer is the Fillmore Unified School District.[1]

In August of 2001, the City of Fillmore introduced its first traffic enforcement motorcycle, a BMW bike, which was purchased with technology grant funds from the State. The motor officer's primary duty is to enforce traffic laws within the city and to investigate traffic accidents that occur within the city limits.
