[Recommended] Matt Costa, High Noon Saloon,Oct. 26th

Matt Costa High Noon Saloon, Oct. 26th, 8pm, $17, Must be 18 years of age or older.  More info at trueendeavors.com A little bit about Matt: Matt Costa is a singer-songwriter born and raised in Huntington Beach, California.  While Matt always had a love for music, his original dream was to become a pro skateboarder.  But those dreams were shattered when he was 18 and hurt his knee.  During his rehabilitation, he rediscovered his love for music and began recording some demos.  One made its way to No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont who offered to help produce Costa’s material.  After recording a few EPs his talents caught the attention of Jack Johnson who signed Costa to his Brushfire Records.  Ever since, Matt’s success has continued to grow.  With three full length albums under his belt and his songs featured in a number of movies and television shows, Costa is proving to be a remarkable musician and songwriter with a promise to do great things.  What does he sound like? It’s easy to hear Matt’s Californian roots in his songwriting.  His songs have a laid back and mellow feel.  There is a lot of beautiful acoustic guitar, whether upbeat or a little more melancholy.  While his early songs are more similar to Donavon Frankenreiter or his label owner Jack Johnson, his newest album is a little different.  Mobile Chateau was released just this past September and proves Matt is not afraid to branch out.  This album has a definite 60’s feel to it.  It’s a little more guitar heavy and boasts some psychedelic organ and backing influences to give it a completely retro feel. Some of his best songs: Sunshine Cold December Mr. Pitiful Witchcraft See the retro style video for Matt's new single Witchcraft.

I think my heart may have stopped beating
Dear Superstars, During last night's elimination I think my heart may have stopped beating and that would've been it's own "drive-by heartache." This competition is tough but I'm very proud for making it through the first challenge. My level of...

Blood Moon: reason to stay up late, or end of the world?
There's a preacher in Texas who's a little freaked out about tonight's lunar eclipse, and the three that follow every six months over the next two years. He thinks it's a signal of the end of the world!, and has even written a book...
