Los Lonely BoysMusic quite literally flows through the genes of the Garza Brothers, the three Texas men who make up Los Lonely Boys: Their father and uncles performed in a group together, playing Mexican norteno while Henry, JoJo and Ringo sang backup in their pre-teen years. After the family moved to Nashville, the brothers started their own project, drawing on a variety of influences, including blues, soul country, Tejano and even a little Tex-Mex flavor. In 2004, the band released its debut album and achieved a No. 1 hit almost right out the gate with the hummable, inescapable single “Heaven.” Since then, things have continued to skyrocket, with Grammy triumphs, commercial endorsements, tours with Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana and, now, a successful followup to their self-titled debut, Sacred. These men turned to Boys perform at the Santa Barbara Bowl on August 24 with Monterey, Mexico’s premiere dance band, Kinky, opening up.

The CasualtiesThe brand of street punk perfected by the Casualties is so youthful, so charged with adolescent energy, that it’s hard to fathom that the group is now 16 years old. In band terms, that’s friggin’ ancient. But the music retains its raging, dissatisfied edge, even as its revolving-door membership gets older. It’s fast and loud, the aural manifestation of colored mohawks, chains, spikes, ripped shirts and unpleasing odors. It’s punk the way people remember it. Get nostalgic at Alpine on August 24.

John Mayall & the BluesbreakersIf it weren’t for John Mayall, who knows how different the rock landscape would have looked in the 1960s? He was the patriarch of British blues, the guy who taught all the people who became bigger icons and legends than he how to do it. His group, the Bluesbreakers, provided secondary education for future superstars such as Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor, who all took that knowledge and went on to greater individual success with Cream, Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones. As tremendous a legacy as that is, Mayall himself has, unfortunately, been something of a background player in the history of rock’n’roll. His 1966 album, Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton, is widely credited with having jumpstarted the blues explosion in England, but for the most part people other than critics and rock aficionados have little concept of just how significant a talent Mayall is. Perhaps that’s why he’s continuing to tour to this day: to let everyone know. He and his latest incarnation of the Bluesbreakers boogie into the Canyon on August 25.
