The Crepe Place
1134 Soquel Avenue, Santa Cruz, 95060

Smoke Chaser is an all-original, five-piece indie rock band out of Santa Cruz, California. NPR called their debut 2023 album, Alazapul, “a 10-song fever dream of wildly catchy California indie rock.” Led by producer and guitarist Jon Spivak, Smoke Chaser features renowned Monterey singer Malinda DeRouen (Beach Blanket Babylon), Ryan Masters (The Suborbitals), and the multimedia rhythm section that is Eric Satzman and James Frederickson. Listen to Smoke Chaser’s August 2023 NPR interview and in-studio performance:

Lance Richards, Angel Lopez and Johnny Ray Valentine play hard-driving psychedelic blues. From jaw-dropping takes on Hendrix, Trower and Cream to poignant originals like “I Am Not Your Indian”, the Lance Richards Band will burn down the Crepe Place. Come early to catch their electric 9 pm set.
