Headliner: The Motels

The Motels
One of LA’s original new wave bands, Martha Davis & The Motels scored big with hits including “Only the Lonely,” “Suddenly Last Summer,” “Total Control,” “Mission of Mercy” “Shame” and “Danger” netting two gold albums. MTV videos did not kill this radio star with lead singer and songwriter Martha Davis winning Best Performance in a Music Video at the American Music Awards for her performance in the “Only the Lonely” video. With an 80’s revival now in full swing, Martha Davis & The Motels are back on the road pleasing their legions of fans.

Opener: Hayward Williams

Hayward WilliamsAfter a crippling struggle with anxiety, Hayward Williams learned how to think, feel, write and perform again. This provided a backdrop for his newest record, “The Reef”. Williams and his team set the record to tape during a series of whirlwind recording sessions in western Massachusetts. Tracking together in a room, singing and playing at the same time, and only doing a few takes per song imbues The Reef with a vibey, electric feel, vanishingly rare in contemporary recordings. While we have had him on our stage as a solo opener in 2015, Hayward will be joining Tosa Tonight with his band to open the show.
