PREACHERS & PORNSTARS Despite numerous personnel changes and strange rashes, this band has soldiered on. After a six-month hiatus to find a new guitarist, it will return to Ventura County stages three times this weekend. In its latest incarnation as a five-piece, Preachers & Pornstars are packing a meaner punch than ever with grunge-laced, pedal-to-the-metal rock. Thursday, May 28 at Nicholby’s with a stellar line-up of Ventura County’s best live music.
