Left Coast Live announces the start of its 2011 music season with a live music series and companion cable program, site to be held monthly (Thursdays) at the Theatre on San Pedro Square.
The opening concert for Left Coast Live 365 will feature native bands Almost Honest and Distant Dice on Thursday, June 16. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. Show starts at 7:30 p.m.; doors open at 7:15 p.m.
Headliner Almost Honest is a local band made good. The pop / rock duo of Drew Oropeza and Justin Florence recently finished recording their debut album of the same name in Los Angeles. Produced by James Saez, who’s worked with artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, REM, Tom Petty, Green Day and more, it promises to launch the two into the biggest phase of their career. Almost Honest will be giving a sneak peak of the album on the 16th.
Opener Distant Dice is also a local favorite, the five–piece band has long been winning fans for their unique fusion of jazz and rock accompanied by the sultry vocals of lead singer Jackie Gage. Jackie is backed by Joey Trobly on keys, Mark Arroyo on guitar, Jose Martinez on bass and Peter Do on drums.

Left Coast Live Cable Cable Program
As part of the LCL365 series, CreaTV San Jose and Executive Producer Tawnya Lancaster are co-producing a 30–minute cable show that will air on the new CreaTV Silicon Valley Channel 30 (Comcast Cable). Lancaster will interview bands and a three–camera crew will film their performance.
“We’re editing the show to be edgy and fun — it’s a little bit of ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ with ‘MTV Unplugged,’ thrown in — for the Bay Area,” said Lancaster. “We definitely want audience involvement in the show, so anyone who wants to be on a music program should come out on the 16th.”
