Picks of the week
SHADES OF DAY/ALL SEEING EYES One of Ventura County’s favorite bands returns from a brief hiatus to share a bill with the new kids on the block. Shades of Day, with new material and a record in the works, joins up with glitter kids the All Seeing Eyes, for a night of unsurpassed rock ‘n’ roll that should leave everyone in need of a shower. The Eyes are getting ready to leave home for a mini-tour so catch ‘em while you can and Shades of Day have been busy in the barn/studio with the follow-up to Mayday, so it’s become a bit of a rare treat to see them. Friday, June 5, at Bombay Bar & Grill, 143 S California St, Ventura. 643-4404, www.myspace.com/manyshadesofday or www.myspace.com/zacharyjamesband
