12pm PT on Sept. 4 – Spafford

Arizona jam band Spafford has released more live albums (seven) than studio LPs (five), and that speaks to the experience that is a Spafford concert—something you may have encountered at any number of festivals in the last few years.

2pm PT on Sept. 4 – Bruce Cockburn

A lifelong activist and environmentalist, Bruce Cockburn released his first album 51 years ago, the self-titled Bruce Cockburn after playing in Canadian bands The Children, The Esquires, The Flying Circus and 3’s a Crowd. After a series of Juno Awards and hits in Canada, he found broader success with his 1979 album Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws and its single “Wondering Where the Lions Are,” through his politically progressive albums of the 1980s and T Bone Burnett-produced albums of the 1990s. Crowing Ignites from 2019 was the 26th of his career. This will be his second performance for the Paste Studio cameras.

3:30pm PT on Sept. 4 – The Stone Foxes

San Francisco blues rock band The Stone Foxes met during high school and attended San Francisco State University together. Since then, they’ve opened for groups like The Black Keys and Cage the Elephant and ZZ Top, releasing six full-length albums over their career.

12pm PT on Sept. 5 – JJ Wilde

2pm PT on Sept. 5 – Destroy Boys

Northern California punk trio Destroy Boys will release their third LP Open Mouth on Oct. 8. Guitarist/vocalists Violet Mayugba and Alexia Roditis have been playing together since 2015, adding Narsai Malik on drums three years later. You can find their music on more than 20,000 user-made Tik Tok videos, part of the reason its been streamed more than 60 million times.

5pm PT on Sept. 5 – Wax Owls

Los Angeles folk-pop trio Wax Owls is led by multi-instrumentalist Gerry Hirschfeld, who has written for and toured with Willie Nelson, among many others. Drummer Chris Tsaganeas and bassist Randell Adams are no strangers to the music scene either, having toured nationally with several other bands.
