On Friday, June 7, 2013, the Museum of Making Music presents its popular Local Flavor Concert Series combining up-and-coming Southern California artists in an intimate concert setting with local food and beverages generously provided by Stone Brewing Company, Flippin' Pizza, and Knockout Pizza.
This concert features the music of San Diego singer/songwriter Tolan Shaw. Tickets are $10. Food service begins at 6 PM.
Tolan Shaw is an accomplished singer/songwriter from San Diego, crafting songs based on travel and life experiences. He is better known for his work with the San Diego based band, The New Archaic, as the frontman. The band won Best New Artist at the 2009 San Diego Music Awards. In 2010 they received another San Diego Music Award nomination for Best Alternative Album on their debut full-length Movers and Fakers, and were in high demand to perform at San Diego's most well known venues, opening for international acts such as Switchfoot, Dashboard Confessional, and Third Eye Blind.
Tolan's solo work is inspired by travel, spiritual discoveries, nature, and big questions of life. He sees music as a way to delve deeper into his own journey through life and to connect with others, writing directly from the heart. Though differing from the music of The New Archaic, Tolan's solo performance is equally as captivating, exposing raw emotion and soul and brimming with dynamics. Tolan began to refine his solo show in 2009, putting on standing room only performances at local coffeehouses and opening for touring artists such as Matt Costa, Jon Foreman, and The Format.
After securing first place as 'Best Songwriter' at the San Diego County Fair in 2011, Tolan took off on a songwriting journey through Latin America, through 11 countries, 72 cities, and more than 300 hard boiled eggs... His newest solo work is a blend of catchy melodies, bluesy tones and lyrics inspired by that life changing journey.
Tolan is bringing all his influences to create a bluesy, melodic stew that is unique and tasty.
Stone Brewing doesn’t just make beer; we make craft beer. That means we’re Independently owned, comparatively small, and use authentic brewing methods and ingredients. We focus exclusively on making distinctive, high-quality beers that have become synonymous with San Diego County.
Furthermore, Stone has been recognized by the industry’s leading voices as one of the top brewers in the world. BeerAdvocate Magazine, a highly respected craft beer publication and website, named Stone “All-Time Top Brewery On Planet Earth”—twice. RateBeer.com, a highly trafficked beer enthusiast website, has named Stone Brewing Co. to their “Top 10 Breweries” in the world list 10 years in a row—making Stone the only brewery to earn that honor.
Stone Brewing is one of the principle originators and leaders of the “West Coast”-style of brewing, which is known for big-character and aggressive hoppiness (bitterness). This style has inspired small brewers all over the world to create similarly styled beers. We are honored by the recognition and have often been inspired in return.

For 105 years, Knockout Pizza & Flippin’ Pizza has served authentic, hand-tossed, NY-style pizza to people like you. Well, sort of. See our pizza is 105 years old. No, that’s not right either.
It’s like this—the year is 1903, the Model T was just invented, Teddy Roosevelt was in the White House, and pizza had just come to America. Real pizza. The kind we imagine hungry dock-workers ate, or delivery boys on the run, or those guys who built those big NY skyscrapers, they ate this kind of slice. So what’s that got to do with Flippin’ Pizza and Knockout Pizza? Because that’s the kind of pizza we stand here and make every day. A real, honest pie. An old-school, ‘I’m from Brooklyn and you’re not’ pizza. A New York original, since 2007.
