Local Band Hangout at The Queen Mary @ The Queen Mary
Aug 17 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

The Queen Mary presents LOCAL BAND HANGOUT
Live Music the 3rd Thursday of every month in the Observation Bar!

Sip, dine and listen to your favorite Long Beach-area bands in the historic Observation Bar on Thursday, August 17th!

::: THE LINEUP :::


DJ Buck Bowen is a freethinking, motivational MC with a lyrical appetite for skeptical inquiry and self-development. If he’s not manscaping the middlebrow’s beliefs about reality, he’s inflating the tires of their lackadaicycle. An advocate of mental fitness thru music. This whimsical pen-lifting beat-dropper shines brightest on stage — coalescing brawny beats with catchy choruses, vibrant storytelling, and a splash of dry wit.


DJ Asaka started out in Long Beach playing all original vinyl pressings and now he plays all over LA county in a variety of formats. Funk, Hip hop, World, and Soul are the genres that most often run through his mixes and he’s a part of a DJ collective called Selectors Suite.

FREE Admission
Guests who spend $20 or more at the Observation Bar will receive complimentary self-parking or $15 valet parking.

Flat shoes will work best, and of course, tennis shoes and flip flops, whatever works.

We will have a few drinks at V Room and then walk to The Stache Bar for more drinks and laughs.

Josh Ritter – Live In-Store Performance @ Fingerprints Music
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Josh Ritter is set to release his 9th album, titled Gathering, it features his loyal band-mates, the Royal City band, and marks 20 years since he quietly self-released his debut. In the intervening years he’s been critically acclaimed, cone countless tours, both US and international, played an impressive number of in-stores, including several that we’re still talking about right here at Fingerprints (you know, the important stuff). He’s debuted a record in the top 50 on Billboard, he wrote the lion’s share of the songs on Bob Weir’s recent solo album, and Weir returns the favor with a guest appearance on Gathering, and perhaps most important of all, he has absolutely won us over with his songs, which are long on feeling, stories, and people that we want to know. In short, Josh is a gift.

Gathering is being released on September 22nd, and Josh will be stopping in with Royal City Band member Zachariah Hickman, for a very special in-store performance on Tuesday, September 26th.
The 13 songs featured on the album touch on themes of uncertainty, mania, laughter and sadness. The first single is Showboat, you should check it out, it’s a very Josh Ritter spin on the classic “I Wish it Would Rain” by the Temptations.

We are opening the guest list for this very special event now, with pre-order of the Gathering on CD or LP. If space allows, and it’s unlikely, we will open first come first served once we’re closer. Pre-order/RSVP by dropping into the shop, or by calling 562.433.4996.
