SipMusic Club presents folk artist Tom Brosseau at Lompoc Wine Factory

By CALEB WISEBLOOD

I remember immediately Googling “We Were Meant to Be Together” after hearing the song in the first episode of Netflix’s romantic comedy series Love. Hearing the tune set against a montage cutting back and forth between central stars Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust was my fond introduction to folk singer-songwriter Tom Brosseau, who’s set to perform at Lompoc Wine Factory on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 8 to 9 p.m.

The majority of his discography is original material, but Brosseau chose to dedicate his newest album, In the Shadow of the Hill, to covering songs from fellow folk act The Carter Family, whose impact on the genre, and specifically the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s, is unquestionable.

“The Carter catalogue is full of songs that when listened to and when performed remind us that both good and bad times have happened before and they’ll happen again,” Brosseau said in press materials. “But above all, the Carter Family songs also remind us that we are not alone.”

Certain Sparks Music owner and SipMusic Club founder Randall Sena and his band, The Rad Shadows, will open for Brosseau, with a performance from 7 to 8 p.m. Admission to the concert is free for SipMusic Club members and $10 for non-members. The Lompoc Wine Factory is located at 321 N. D St., Lompoc. Call (805) 588-9479 or visit sipmusic.club to find out more.

You won’t need a crystal ball to predict Santeria’s future at Naughty Oak Brewing Company in Orcutt. The Chicago-based cover band is set to perform at the brewery on Friday, Oct. 4, from 7 to 10 p.m. This Sublime tribute features Bradley Hides on guitar and vocals, Adrien Covington on bass, and Evan Fahning on drums. Qualifying to represent the LBC all the way in Illinois sounds tricky, but at least as the “Doin’ Time” lyrics say: “the living’s easy.”

Weekly Poll
What do you think about Guadalupe's major housing plans, which include 800 planned homes?

Good. The area needs as many new houses as possible.
It's a good idea if commercial developments like big box stores don't follow.
There should be more, but 800 houses is too many.
Bad idea. That many homes will skyrocket the city's population.
