Last Saturday, author Paul G. Maziar celebrated the release of his new sold-out book What It Is: What It Is (MySpace) with a West Coast book release party at {open} (MySpace) in Long Beach.

In addition to a book reading, the night also featured live musical performances by Jessica Dobson (MySpace) from Deep Sea Diver (MySpace), Castledoor (MySpace), and Subrosa (MySpace).

As mentioned previously, Castledoor is in the midst of their month-long Monday residency at Detroit Bar (MySpace) in Costa Mesa, and they are performing a free show this Sunday, as part of the prom-themed Eagle Rock Bowling and Drinking Club (MySpace), with Fol Chen (MySpace) at All Star Lanes Bowling Center.
