Each summer it seems like we have one weekend where we completely overdo it. This year it's the second week of July - welcome to INSANITY WEEKEND 2! We'll have 4 shows in 3 days, starting with Napa City Nights on Friday July 12th. Saturday afternoon we start with a car show benefit in Petaluma, and that night we're at the Redwood Cafe in Cotati. And we finish up on Sunday at the Petaluma Art & Garden Festival. Then we pass out. Come join the insanity!
THIS IS NOT YOUR MAMA'S COVER BAND. Think Beatles, followed by Britney Spears, followed by Metallica. Sounds crazy, but it works. The HOTS have gained a reputation as a band that takes songs you know and love, and makes them come alive in a whole new way... OLD SCHOOL ROCK WITH NEW WHEELS.
3:30-6pm free public show!
Please join us for an evening of Hots rare cuts. We’re gonna sift though our old set lists and play a bunch of songs that for one reason or another have fallen off the radar. Remember that Cher song we played on Halloween two years ago? Neither do we, but we’re gonna dust it off and see what happens. If you like your HOTS silly (and who doesn’t), this’ll be a fun one! Aqus Cafe Foundry Wharf 7-9pm.
Napa City Nights!
One of our favorite summer events. This is a great outdoor setting and Napa always shows us love. We play 8:15 to 10pm. Opening the night are The Noach Tangeras Band and Shelby Ann starting at 6pm.
Let's test out some chaos theory. For the first time, The HOTS will share the stage with The Dictator Tots! And just to keep things interesting, drummer Sean England will be playing with both bands (HOTS drummer Jed Friesen needs a night off - he's raising a 2-year-old and re-modeling a house). Come see what happens! The Dictator Tots start the show at 8pm.
We're stoked to play our first show at Petaluma's coolest summer hang - The Block. Looks like we'll have perfect weather on Saturday. We play 6-9, come out and enjoy the food trucks and beer. And don't forget our buddies The Grain will be playing later at the Mystic, Luvplanet w/ The Grain + Spike Sikes at Mystic Theatre. Make a night of it!
Coyote Sonoma Taproom
We love playing new venues. THIS FRIDAY we'll be at Coyote Sonoma Taproom in Healdsburg. Come out and cheer us on! 8-11pm
Cinco de Micro Beer Event
Cinco de Micro will feature beers from Northern California, and music from the Beer Scouts, Third Rail and The HOTS. The fun starts at 2PM. NO entrance fee. $15 for a glass and 4 tastes of beer. Additional glasses of beer can be purchased for $7 a glass. Food vendors will all be present. The HOTS play 4-6pm
