BROTHERS Liam and Noel Gallagher may have thought they were the Beatles, but their legacy is evaporating into just another pop band from the '90s. It's cool, though—songs like "Live Forever," "Champagne Supernova" and "Wonderwall" got enough airplay at the time that they're permanently attached to coming-of-age moments for Gen Y'ers all over the world. Ryan Adams and the Cardinals and Matt Costa also perform.
MANY cover acts pick a band and stick to it—California Dreamin' picked a state. They cover songs by Californians and about California—a state that has no shortage of odes like "Hotel California," "L.A. Woman," "Folsom Prison Blues" and "If You're Going to San Francisco," all of which the seven-piece band includes in its sets. The $10,000,000 question is, do they know the way to San Jose?

CANDYE KANE is a self-described "White-Trash Diva." Everything about this woman is extra large—especially her gritty, growly, blues-to-the-core voice. As a teenage welfare mom she turned down scholarships to prestigious conservatories to make a living in the sex industry. Luckily for the blues fans the world over, Miss Kane began to subsidize her musical exploits with porno money. She started out channeling her anger alongside punk legends Black Flag and Social Distortion but quickly discovered that her hard-knock life was perfect fuel for the blues circuit. Candye's son and his friends now back up this big beautiful soul mama as she belts out the sexy, dirty, heartbroken truth of it all.
