Camper Van Beethoven Coming to Visalia

Sunday, Feburuary 12
Not An Airplane
$10, 21+, 9:30pm
The Cellar Door
101 W. Main St., Visalia

Camper Van Beethoven frontman David Lowery started the influential band in 1983. CVB's eclectic style mixes pop, ska, punk, rock, folk, and alt. country, all mixing with Lowery's "outsider" whit-filled lyrics.

The band was inactive from 1990-1999, as Lowery instead hit the mainstream with his band Cracker. But soon, thanks to the internet, his old Camper Van Beethoven songs were being covered by bands all over the world. CVB record sales quickly surpassed previous sales.

Luckily, for their original fans and new fans alike, Lowery reformed the band in late 1999. Though they are still performing songs from their legendary albums, such as "Key Lime Pie", they've since recorded new music. This performance will mix the old with the new, as only Camper Van Beethoven can do.

Visalia burrito challenge

I've never eaten at El Rosal Mexican Restaurant in Visalia until recently. I personally did not care for their food. It tasted to me very bland and commercial. They seem to be very busy so somebody likes their food and good for them. I do not believe I will add them to my list of go to restaurants.
One interesting thing is that they have a burrito challenge. The challenge is to eat a 5 and a half pound burrito in 30 minutes or less. Here's a video of one man from out town accepting the challenge. What we need is someone local to try and eat that monster.
