In early 2010, Santa Barbara indie-rockers Gardens & Villa performed for the first time on KCSB-FM, on “The Freak Power Ticket.” Now, just over a year later, the band returns to mark the release of a 7-inch record, and an upcoming performance at SOhO Restaurant and Nightclub. G&V will perform a selection of music, sample other works, and discuss their recent exploits, including the group’s expansion to five members, production of their first album, and the vinyl recording.

Club Mercy Presents an all-ages show with Gardens & Villa, Omar Velasco, and Alixandra on Thursday, February 17th, starting at 9pm. KCSB is a media supporter of this event.
