Snowbyrd, The Dirty Hearts, Fin Del Mar, & Viet-Ruse

Release Date: 2009-02-11

Inventive lap-steel-pop quartet Snowbyrd (below) soldiers on despite losing their beloved drummer, Manny Castillo, to a battle with cancer last month, but his flamboyant style will always be inherent in the band’s diverse, mind-expanding sound. Drummer Johnny Hernandez will pull double duty behind the kit, playing with his own experimental quintet Fin del Mar in addition to performing as a more than adequate Snowbyrd sub. The show marks Fin del Mar’s return to the stage after a 4-month songwriting hiatus. $5/6, 9pm, Rock Bottom, 1033 Ave. B.,
(210) 320-2387.
