“We’re hoping to sell out the house so we can pay rent this month,” said Erland Wanberg, whose band — Erland — headlines Americana Alive | Made in Santa Barbara on Sunday at the Lobero Theatre. The concert showcases a diverse lineup of artists who call Santa Barbara “home.”

“We follow each other’s careers, but we’re all on very different paths,” Wanberg sais. “So Americana Alive gives the bands a rare moment to join forces to deliver an inspiring and memorable performance.”

Americana Alive celebrates the vibrant Santa Barbara music scene and shares the music made in Santa Barbara. Joining Erland on stage are The Kinds, Doublewide Kings, Omar Velasco, Bear Erickson, David Schaeman and Haddon Cord. Big-screen film performances by Vanaka (featuring J.R. Richards) and Mary-Grace Langhorne provide a further taste of the artistry of the Santa Barbara music community.

In addition to supporting local music, the Clean Water Tour is inviting local water organizations and their communities to contribute by sharing their unified message.

“There’s nothing more Americana and down to earth than the foundational role that water plays in our daily lives,” said Conor Quinn, president of the Clean Water Tour. “Santa Barbara is blessed with several water organizations that are doing fantastic work, and we look forward to them coming together in support of local music.”

Concert attendees who download the Clean Water Tour App will also have the opportunity to win Hope-2o home water-testing kits (value: $99) and can purchase kits at a large discount.

“Our research shows that consumers are as concerned about having tools for testing water quality (filtered and tap), as they are about having working fire detectors and carbon monoxide sensors in their homes,” said Dr. Andre Neal, CEO of BOS LLC, a local water technology company that just opened a new office in Goleta.

“They realize that clean water has a positive impact on their health and the health of their families. Hope-2o is the simple solution to provide peace of mind.”

The Clean Water Trou public reception starts at 5 p.m. Sunday ont the Lobero Theatre front terrace, 33 E. Canon Perdido. Doors for the performance open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for $15 and $25, plus fees. Click here to purchase tickets online, or call 805.963.0761.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
