@ Seven Grand San Diego

It’s true much of today’s music seems overly processed, so polished it has lost some of its vitality. Luckily, a growing number of musicians is beginning to buck that trend, taking things back to a more basic structure and, in the process, returning some of the passion to making music. One such performer is Crown Point troubadour James Ruelas, whose acoustic guitar-based sound is so vintage authentic that he recently released his debut album, “I Shall Not Be Moved,” exclusively on vinyl, though with a download card. h

And danced to. Or with. Because, see, they do it all for the love.

So many people in downtown LA already make Tuesday nights at Seven Grand their local spot for great music and a HUGE array of whiskies to choose from. But for those who may not be familiar with The Makers you should make sure to make Seven Grand on Tuesdays a point of destination when in downtown. Their show is a 100% improvised wall of sound that is influenced from everyone from Miles Davis, Radiohead, Medeski Martin and Wood, Four Tet and Mars Volta to Meshell N'degeocello. They go on 10P and jam out till 1A and there is never a cover. Take it from the locals, it's a must see show! Dav
