Felsen and Rich McCulley (CD Release Show!) - Private Parlor Show (($10 before/$15 day of show))

Oakland-based indie rockers, Felsen, have recently completed their fourth album, I Don’t Know How to Talk Anymore, slated for national release on September 4, 2013. Songs were written collectively by the band—guitarist Dylan Brock, singer/guitarist Andrew Griffin, bassist Christian Hernandez, and drummer Art McConnell. Felsen took a strictly DIY approach with this new album, recording and mixing it themselves at Hernandez’s house in the East Bay.

The songs fit together like a novel telling a story about the need to re-humanize ourselves in the face of excess affluence. In the wake of soul-crushing technological advancements, art wins, humanity prevails. Felsen’s influences include Wilco (Summerteeth), The Beatles (White Album), Beach Boys (Smile), U2 (Achtung Baby), Radiohead (OK Computer), Flaming Lips (Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots), Pink Floyd (Meddle), Spoon (Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga), and Camper Van Beethoven (Key Lime Pie).

Felsen has toured throughout the West and are now about to embark on their largest national tour to date. Felsen has opened for Camper Van Beethoven, Marcy Playground, One Eskimo, Stone Foxes and Luce. In November, 2010, Deli Magazine readers voted them Band of the Month. They have performed at Noise Pop and three of their songs are included in Rock Band, the video game. I Don't Know How To Talk Anymore Album was voted 2013 Album of The Year by Sacramento's Twirl Radio and San Francisco's KFOG Radio (one of the nation's top AAA radio stations) selected their song "Rock And Roll's Not Dead" for inclusion in their Local Scene Compilation Volume 11.

Frontman Andrew Griffin started Felsen after his 2006 cancer diagnosis, which led to the release of Felsen's first album, Accidental Drowning, in 2009. Felsen Loves You—an EP on the Ninth Street Opus label—followed in 2010, and in 2011 another full-length album—Breaking up with Loneliness—was self-released.

Rich McCulley

After seven albums and many years of solo music making, roots rocker Rich McCulley is still finding new inspiration in life. With his latest record “Out Along The Edges,” he writes of both love and loss, good and not so good, hard and better times. He’s brought his classic, road-tested sound: satisfying melodies, chiming guitars, hummable harmonies, whirling organs… all the elements of catchy roots pop and recorded in a richly-arranged Americana style that is McCulley’s trademark. Ever present is his distinctive gravelly voice, providing a solid dose of heartfelt character throughout the songs.

Since his debut solo record in 2000, McCulley’s credits have included critical acclaim, hundreds of storied gigs from coast to coast, tens of thousands of touring miles, hundreds of published songs and co-writes, and production credits on dozens of records by important LA bands. His songs and co-written tunes appear in several movies, including 2012’s “Little Birds” and “Donner Pass.” His music has also been featured on FX’s “The League,” ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Men In Trees,” CBS’s “Cold Case,” HBO’s “Cathouse” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives” to name a few. “Summer Storm” from “Out Along The Edges” was featured in CMT’s hit show “Nashville” in January 2017. McCulley hails from the Central Valley of California where he wrote, recorded and toured with a variety of country rock and pop rock bands on labels such as Geffen and Columbia. He now makes his home in Los Angeles.

Tonight is the CD release for "Out Along The Edges" Rich McCulley's brand new CD.
