The Davis Live Music Collective is proud to kick off its 2013 schedule with Camper Van Beethoven, live at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall Monday, February 18th.

$18 advanced tickets are available at Armadillo Music or davislivemusic.com. Tickets will be available for $20 at the door. Odd Fellows Hall is at 415 2nd Street in downtown Davis. The show is open to fans of all ages, with doors opening at 7pm and music starting at 7:30pm.

The alt-rock mainstays will return to Davis for the first time in more than 25 years. This year will also mark the band’s 30th anniversary with the release of their 8th studio album La Costa Perdida, available this month. Paste Magazine's advanced review raves "La Costa Perdida vividly captures the wild characters and odd experiences that happen on the coastline of northern California" while Los Angeles Magazine calls the album“... a dreamy musical trip along Highway 1 full of guitar-driven odes and accessible alt-country tunes.”

Produced by the band and recorded over the course of two weeks at band member Jonathan Segel’s home studio in Oakland, La Costa Perdida is their most cohesive album yet, marking the first time Camper Van Beethoven have ever recorded live-off-the-floor as a whole band. The album is steeped in their connection to Northern California, specifically the areas where the band members first nurtured their musical talents – Redlands, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. With a geographical jumping off point, the band fills in the dramatic, joyous, interpersonal and psychological aspects of the locales as only CVB can.

Says bass player Victor Krummenacher, “The coolest part was that everything flowed from the fact that these distinctive musicians and personalities sat in the living room. Our music now sounds like four people are writing it. The songs have great energy, but we’re more relaxed and stately and a lot more confident. The songwriting here has elements of vintage Camper along with grown-up Camper.”

The band will bring this confidence as well as the infectious energy of their live show to Davis on Monday, February 18th. For ticket and information visit davislivemusic.com.
