Vast, Mothers Anthem, & Emporium

Release Date: 2008-01-16

The name stands for Visual Audio Sensory Theater, and the musical outfit came of age in the Bay Area in the mid ’90s with a self-titled debut which became a cult classic. VAST frontman Jon Crosby’s unique songwriting and production style continues to evade niche appeal, mixing electronic, world, classical, metal, and pop to create a sound that’s impossible to pigeonhole. $17, 8pm, Jack’s Patio Bar, 29500 Thousand Oaks, realvast.com.
