now, onto your regularly scheduled blogging -

here's a single-show offering from Joe Sib (Wax, Side One Dummy)

Joining Sib for this one-night-only event is Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett, who will be performing a special acoustic set, along with guests Zander Schloss (Joe Strummer, Circle Jerks) and Sean Wheeler (Throwrag).

CALIFORNIA CALLING is a funny and subtly poignant performance about the transformative power of music and how the California-born Sib continues to have a sincere communion with it in all aspects of his life. Sib does his entire show in front of photographs from punk photographers Murray Bowles, Edward Culver and Lisa Johnson.

For clips from CALIFORNIA CALLING, visit and and see the critical quotes below. "Joe Sib's California Calling is filled with as much punk rock spirit as the great bands he loved growing up. I am coming back again," said Jakob Dylan of an early Sib performance he caught.

Sib is the Wax frontman, co-owner of independent label Side One Dummy Records, host of punk rock radio show "Complete Control"--airing in seven cities across the country including Los Angeles' 98.7FM show. He is also host of the Bay Area's Channel 92.3FM "Music in the Mornings" show.
