In just two weeks (on Saturday, October 1st), we’ll be headlining “the London Blitz”, part of this year’s San Diego Who Con!
We’re obviously huge fans of Doctor Who, and frankly, of San Diego. So this is a huge honor all around.
We’ll be playing at 8:30, with a second set at probably 10pm. Give or take. (People assume that start times are a strict progression from cause to effect. But actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey… stuff.)
Random Gibberish is also performing!
Tickets for the event can be found here. Picking any of these options will get you into the concert:
If you need a hotel room, there’s info on that here.
Be sure to “like” San Diego Who Con’s Facebook page for up-to-the-minute announcements!
Also, there’s a guinea pig.

The Velveteen Band will be playing a couple of songs at the Ventura County Music Awards this Friday. And we do mean “a couple”. Come support all the great Ventura bands who’ll be playing a song or two for you. There’ll be like 20 of ’em. Seriously. It’s like a sampler platter for your ears!
The event is open to the public this year. It’s at the Camarillo airport! $20 tickets can be found at http://venturacountymusicawards.com
We’re playing two sets at the Ventura County Fair this year. August 10th, at 8:30pm and 10pm. Admission to the fair is only $3 that day, if you arrive before 3pm.

July 30th, Bar Sinister, Hollywood, CA!
THE VELVETEEN BAND
This is an absolute wonderland dream lineup for us, at our most favorite venue in Hollywood, BAR SINISTER! We hope you will join us for a magical evening of amazing music.
We were so excited about this performance, Claire Flores, puppeteer and artist for the Velveteen Band, spent several months working on the art for the poster. It has elements of all three bands, and we will have a few printed copies available at the show for sale for $5!
The Ventura County Music Awards are back! We’ll be doing a brief showcase performance at the Greek in Ventura Harbor, on Thursday, July 21 2016. We play at 8pm, but it’s a small room — get there by 7 to ensure seating!
That’s 1583 Spinnaker Drive, suite 101, Ventura CA 93001
Brian Parra had another thoughtful conversation with our own Jason Amelio on the “There’s No Time To Explain” podcast. Topics run the gamut from BLM and police brutality, to the nature of Steampunk. Listen here.
Or check out the previous interviews with Dan and Jason, which were maybe a bit more music-centric.
(As always, if you’d like to interview anyone from the Velveteen Band for your own publications, hit us up on the Contact page!)
The Velveteen Band will be performing at the Camarillo Fiesta and Street Fair, July 9th at 5pm. Bring the whole family for a day of fun!
