“The English Beat” at the Cave

Nov 25, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

The English Beat is a band with an energetic mix of musical styles and a sound like no other. The band’s unique sound has allowed it to endure for nearly three decades and appeal to fans, young and old, all over the world.

When The English Beat (known simply as The Beat in their native England) rushed on to the music scene in 1979, it was a time of massive social and political unrest and economic and musical upheaval. This set the stage for a period of unbridled musical creativity, and thanks in large part to the Punk movement and it’s DIY approach to making music, artists like The Beat were able to speak out and speak their mind on the news of the day, as in “Stand Down Margaret”, things that mattered to them and the youth culture, as in “Get A Job”, and universal matters of the heart and soul, as in their classic hits “I Confess” and “Save It For Later”.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 7:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

Location: The Cave at 40789 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315

“Los Lobos” at the Cave

Dec 30, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.Although the album’s name and title song were inspired by a National Geographic article about real life wolves in the wild, the band—David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin—saw parallels with their struggle to gain mainstream rock success while maintaining their Mexican roots.

Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.

The Kodiak 100 Ultramarathon

Sep 16, 2016 12:00PM – Sep 18, 2016 12:00AM

Trail running in the San Bernardino Mountains at it’s finest will be on display for the Kodiak 100 miler, the  Kodiak 50 miler and Kodiak 50K. Southern California mountains tend to surprise people, especially in September-its phenomenal conditions. It’s typically sunny, the temperature is almost always comfortable, considering this course is ALL between 5,100′ and 10,000′ .

The nights can be that nice cool Alpine chill, but no where near freezing. (if you’re  a shirtless runner, you may want to reconsider at least for this night section. Day times- late September, should be stellar- with temps in the 60′s and 70′s.

It’s pretty reliable and trusty weather in Late September, high likely hood of great race conditions.

100 Mile Race Start – Friday 12 Noon

Front 50K Race Start – Friday 12:01 PM

50 Mile Race Start – Saturday 6AM

Back 50K Race Start – Saturday 8AM

BIG Change for 2016 – Reversing Course! In an effort to keep things interesting we will be reversing course and running clockwise around the lake! Did that just put the summit of Sugarloaf at mile 75? Why yes, yes it did. Some will ask, why would you do that? It takes out the Siberia Creek climb which is the highlight of the course. And they would have a point. However, the reverse direction presents it’s own set of unique characteristics and challenges. The run from Grandview to the bottom of Siberia Creek is absolutely gorgeous, the climbs in this direction are STEEP,  Sugarloaf Mountain and the technical terrain leading to and from it will be a MAJOR factor late in the run. Regardless of direction this course is tough and beautiful!

Finish Festival and Awards at the Village & Pine Knot in The Village of Big Bear Lake.
