November 2009 Updates

A podcast by Bart:

It was announced on FM94.9 that Manual Scan was back in the studio for the first time in 25 years, with Alan Sanderson producing (The Rolling Stones / Weezer / Elvis Costello) on Dec. 23 for a special FM94.9 "Pyles Sessions" broadcast in January 2010.

Manual Scan show on January 30, 2010
Manual Scan will be opening for The Penetrators, alongside The Town Criers (With Ray Brandes and Mark Z) and the Blues Gangsters on January 30, 2010

One of San Diego’s greatest holiday traditions, this annual airing of Rolling Stones seventies/eighties classic is still the best way to top off Christmas Eve. Exile on Kettner Blvd. takes place on December 24, 9 pm-ish, at The Casbah. This year’s line up includes an all-star band: Mario Escovedo (vocals), Joe Camacho, George Vidardi, Joey Guevara, Romy Kaye, Rick Wilkins, Jonny Viau, & Brian Cantrell. Mid-set the band changes gears to sixties Stones classics, with a change of musicians backing Escovedo, including Morgan Smith and Bart Mendoza on lead and rhythm guitar respectively. Special guests for the night include Steve Poltz and El Vez, so this will be quite a night. Free
