Local music roundup - Adjoa Skinner in Pomona, Hip Pocket at your local music store

This Empoprise-MU music blog is being written from California's Inland Empire (see Empoprise-IE for local Inland Empire news), so when I speak of "local" music, that's what I mean.

First let's look at a press release that I found in the Claremont Insider:

Live Music in Downtown Pomona

Following the opening night success of the new entertainment series featured at Sakura Ichi in Downtown Pomona, the Bar will host another promising musician sure to delight the patrons of Downtown Pomona.

Last Friday night, singer/songwriter Jason Diaz left a welcoming crowd delighted with his soulful and innovative musical offerings. Though the area is known for its up tempo thrashing musicians and a legendary once renown punk scene, Downtown Pomona can soon boasts itself as a beacon for acoustic musicians and a more settled audience.

Sakura Ichi provides a change of pace to the locale and a dip in decibels with their musical receptions. On September 19, Vocalist Adjoa Skinner will bring her Jazz infused folk-pop arrangements, which have serenaded crowds at world famous venues like the Viper Room in Hollywood and The Derby Night Club in Los Angeles.

Place: Sakura Ichi Bar
101 W. Mission Blvd, #101, Pomona, CA 91766
Date: 09/19/08
Time: 10:30pm

SUITE 101 Presents: Adjoa Skinner

To listen to Adjoa Skinner visit:

But if you can't wait until Friday night to hear local music, run out to selected records stores right now to get the Hip Pocket CD. Inland Empire News says that the CD, entitled "Blue Circle," is available at three Redlands locations (Barnes & Noble, Celebrate Redlands, and Gerrard's Market), Rhino Records in Claremont, and Amoeba Records in Hollywood.

For more on Hip Pocket, see this July blog post in Empoprise-IE.
