With a new record, Dark Arc, to be released on the ANTI- label next month, and a live show that built a national fan base, Columbus, Ohio’s Saintseneca comes to the Cellar Door in downtown Visalia on Friday, March 28, with quite the buzz. The group’s diverse assemblage of influences, poetic lyricism and folk instrumentation is consistently enhanced by elements of pop, post-punk and psychedelia.
Visalia’s own The Gospel Whiskey Runners are set to open the night. The group has become the area’s best-drawing local acoustic-based folk/rock band.
Tickets for the 9:30pm 21+ show are $7 and available at ticketweb.com.
On Friday, April 4, Sound N Vision will present a double headline-worthy bill, when two long-time Central Valley giants unite. Fresno-raised A.C. Myles and Visalia’s Mezcal join forces at the Cellar Door.
Mezcal plays world music, pop, rock, funk and soul. With two female singers sharing vocal duties with band leader Carlos Rodriguez, the depth of the band’s material is almost infinite. Flashy lead guitars, keys, horns and multiple percussionists fill out a sound that always keeps the crowd dancing.
A. C. Myles has a new spring record release titled “Reconsider Me” — a title that gels with his long-awaited return to Cellar Door, as he asks his long-time fan base to reconsider him after a long break from Visalia shows due to his busy national tour schedule. Myles is a blues purist who grew up in the Central Valley and has followed his guitar around the nation his entire young adult life, making friends and building music community along the way.
Tickets for the 9:30pm 21+ show are $10 and available at ticketweb.com.
