The latest musical trends are developing in the clubs—YouTube rates the growing acceptance of club music as one of the top trends in music last year. Ohlone brings a mix of indie, alternative, rock, country and jazz together to heat up your night.
The show runs for two nights, Friday and Saturday June 22-23 and features Cosmic Machine, Monica Ramos, Von von Lindenberg, Lisa Marie Johnston, Katie and the Horndogs, and Erica Benton. For additional information about the performers, go to smithcenter.com.
