Tonight in Rock: Shwayze & Cisco Adler...

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

Cisco Adler protégé and collaborator, Shwayze (seen to the left), is hitting up Redondo Beach tonight with his happier sounding indie hip-hop. He grew up in a trailer park... a trailer park in Malibu that is. “To me, it was the nicest trailer of all time," the 22-year-old musician says. He and Adler play at the Venezia Italian Grill and you can start your night in Malibu, riding the bus down with the gang (RSVPs required, see the MySpace flier).

"Buzzin'" - Shwayze

"Don't Be Shy" - Shwayze

And why not keep tonight all about the Southbay? The excellent blues rock with a splash of bluegrass musician, Eric Sardinas at Cafe Boogaloo in Hermosa Beach (tomorrow he'll be at Cozy's in Sherman Oaks). On his MySpace, check out "Liar's Dice Blues" and "Cherry Bomb." Below is a sample of his solo finger work:

"Old Smyrna Road" - Eric Sardinas

Okay, we'll leave the beach and head a little more East now. The colorfully dark and melancholy indie band, The Black Heart Processsion of San Diego, are at Spaceland tonight.
