A Special Americana Night At Roxanne’s LB Sound A-Go-Go

Roxanne’s is one of Long Beach’s best night-spots featuring fantastic food, drinks, craft cocktails, entertainment and an outdoor patio for great evenings every night of the week!
“Although devoted Deadheads will be the prime target audience, Long Strange Trip also provides a detailed primer for curious rock fans who never bought into the cult around the band.” -Hollywood Reporter
“At three hours and 58 minutes, it has the sprawl and generosity of a good Dead show, yet there’s nothing indulgent about it – it’s an ardent piece of documentary classicism.” -Variety
“[This] film will make those who normally scoff at those patchouli-smelling ersatz flower children tap their feet, maybe even join them for a dance.” -Vanity Fair
The 30-year odyssey of the Grateful Dead was the most unlikely success story in rock ‘n’ roll history. Famously averse to publicity and seemingly incapable of recording radio-friendly hits, they flouted music-industry convention by giving their live music away to a global network of tape traders and becoming the highest-grossing concert act in America through word of mouth alone. Directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story) and executive produced by Martin Scorsese (The Last Waltz), Long Strange Trip is the first full-length documentary to explore the fiercely independent vision, perpetual innovation, and uncompromising commitment to their audience that made the Bay Area band one of the most influential musical groups of their generation. Artfully assembling candid interviews with the band, road crew, family members and notable Deadheads, Bar-Lev reveals the untold history of the Dead and the freewheeling psychedelic subculture that sprouted up around it. The film also provides poignant insight into the psyche of late lead guitarist Jerry Garcia, whose disdain for authority clashed with his de facto leadership of the sprawling collective that kept the show on the road. With a soundtrack that captures some of the band’s most dynamic live performances as well as unguarded offstage moments and never-before-seen interviews, footage and photos, Long Strange Trip explores the Dead’s singular experiment in radically eclectic music making. Much more than the “behind the music” backstory of an exceptionally talented and beloved group of musicians, the film is at once an inspiring tale of unfettered artistic expression, a heartfelt American tragedy, and an incisive history of the rise and fall of 20th-century counterculture.
Not Rated 3 hr, 59 mins.

Carole Frances Lung is a soft guerilla activist, artist and academic living in Long Beach, CA. Through her alter ego Frau Fiber, Carole utilizes a hybrid of playful activism, cultural criticism, research and spirited crafting of one-of-a-kind garment production performances investigating the human cost of mass production and consumption, addressing issues of value and time, through the thoroughly hand-made construction and salvaging of garments.
I am a 38-year-old, mexican and white, passionate, sensitive, childless, educated, beautiful American woman. I wear these labels with confidence and with self-doubt. The term Chingona, which translates to badass woman has been the label that really sums up how I have moved through the last few years.
A Lot Like Birds at Chain Reaction
We are moving the date for this unique show from Thurs. June 1 to Wed. May 31.
Two influential members of the iconic Los Lobos band will appear at Don the Beachcomber on Wed. May 31.
Dos Lobos Blues Band, fronted by Cesar Rosas & David Hidalgo, will perform their magical music approx. 8 – 11 pm.
With cabaret-style seating and full dinner menus to choose from, the evening will be a showcase of the two revered writer/musicians’ established songs – as well as some new numbers.
Don’t miss this important look at the life and work of two talented SoCal artists.
César Rosas is a singer, songwriter and guitarist for Los Lobos. … Perhaps the most recognizable member of Los Lobos, he is known for his trademark black sunglasses, goatee and black hair.
In the Los Lobos cocina, Cesar Rosas is the meat-and-potatoes man, so it’s no surprise that his “Soul Disguise”–the first solo album by a member of the East L.A. institution — served up heaps of dense, earthy comfort food. The singer-guitarist has been playing this kind of music for some 25 years, and was a member of Los Super Seven as well.
Rosas played a role in the wild experimentation of recent Los Lobos material, but he’s also that band’s traditionalist, spinning nervy tunes of raw Mexican folk and lowdown blues, providing an anchor of continuity to its increasingly bizarre trips.
David Hidalgo is best known for being the driving vocal and lead guitar force of the legendary East LA band Los Lobos (Spanish for “the wolves”). He has been a creative force exploring the borders of rock, country, R&B, Tex-Mex and cumbia for four decades. David is also a member of Los Super Seven and of the Latin Playboys, a side project band made up of some of the members of Los Lobos. He formed as well a side project band called Houndog.
In addition to his work with Los Lobos, David frequently plays musical instruments such as accordion, violin, 6-string banjo, cello, requinto jarocho, percussion, drums and guitar as a session musician on other artists’ releases.

soundpedro will be the first of recurring events highlighting sound art in which single- and multi-media artworks will investigate the way we use our senses to perceive and experience. This event will be produced by FLOOD who for 10 years brought SoundWalk to Long Beach.
After the final SoundWalk in 2013, sound artists throughout the region lamented the loss of a high-profile niche event that introduced mainstream communities to an art form frequently relegated to the margins. Last year, Amy Eriksen, Executive Director of Angels Gate Cultural Center — a venue that in 1998 initiated experiments in the area of sound —reached out to FLOOD with the goal of starting a new event.
“Visual art pieces are often shown in galleries all over the SouthBay. This collaboration seeks to bring another great niche of artists to be heard, sound artists all over the country will dazzle the hilltop,” says Amy Eriksen, Executive Director of Angels Gate Cultural Center.
