Opening Act: The Atomic Sherpas
The Atomic Sherpas meld funk, blues, jazz, and psychedelic rock and combine it with a freewheeling stage show and a compelling dance groove that keeps the audience dazzled and dancing. Grizzled veteranos of L.A. punk rock, free jazz, blues, roots and rock n' roll scenes join forces with whippersnappers with mad skills for the simple goal of transporting their audiences to the ecstatic states previously known only to whirling dervishes.
Members of The Atomic Sherpas have played/toured/recorded with the following groups: Mike Watt, Stew, Bazooka, Fatso Jetson, Brant Bjork, Double Naught Spy Car, The Black Widows, I See Hawks In L.A., Christopher Owens, Texas Terri, Shelby Lynne, The BellRays, The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs, Carlos Guitarlos, Passing Strange (The Musical), Love & Mercy (The Film) and El Grupo Sexo.
