KCAL and beer go together like….well, KCAL and beer! You’ve been hearing a bit about it, and we couldn’t be more excited to tell you more about a project we’ve been working on…we hooked up with the awesome brew masters over at Inland Empire Brewing Company in Riverside to come up with a series of seasonal KCAL inspired beers. The KCAL Rocks The IE Brew Series! The first one is a refreshing light lager perfect for the hot I.E. summer that we’re calling The Riverside Rocker. It’ll be available in stores soon, but this Saturday you can be among the very first to try it when you join the Stuman and the KCAL Crew for the debut tapping at the big Anniversary Party happening at D Dogs Sportsbar in Downtown Riverside from 4pm-6pm.

Here’s the cover art for the new Foo Fighters album, Sonic Highways, coming out November 10th. It is their 8th album and if you check it out, you’ll see the number 8 shows up in all 8 cities represented on the cover since the album was recorded in eight different cities, New York, Seattle, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin, TX and Chicago. Dave Grohl tells you what you can expect, “This album is instantly recognizable as a Foo Fighters record, but there’s something deeper and more musical to it. I think that these cities and these people influenced us to stretch out and explore new territory, without losing our ‘sound.’” Here’s a little snippet and a piece of video from one of the songs:
Here are the 8 songs on the album:
“Something from Nothing”
“The Feast and The Famine”
“What Did I Do?/God as My Witness”
“In the Clear”
“I Am a River”
And, to help get you geared up for the new album, Dave has also put together an 8 part special featuring the recording process in each of the cities that we’ll be able to catch starting in October on HBO.
