Rocks'nard

When it comes to rocking out, no one does it like
Oxnard. Thanks to a vibrant music scene that has
produced some of the biggest names in rock, hip-hop,
metal and more, this beloved beach town has become
a musical mecca in its own right. Discover rising stars
at one of the city's popular venues, dance the day
(and night) away at a music festival, or check out a
piece of music history.

the city, and entire genres of music have taken off
within city limits. Take "Nardcore," for instance - a
musical style emphasizing raw sounds and turbulent
tempo changes. This influential hardcore punk-rock
subgenre originated in Oxnard in the 1970s and gave
rise to bands like Agression, Dr. Know, Nails and Ill
Repute.
And Oxnard's hip-hop scene has produced top-tier
talent including Declaime, Lootpack, Madlib and
M.E.D. - integral game changers in West Coast
hip-hop's eclectic, neo-soul stylings of the late '90s.
Today, a new generation of local music influencers
are taking the stage: Anderson .Paak, Brooke Candy
and Cola Boyy are topping charts with their festivalworthy verses, turning ears Oxnard's way to hear
what's next to come.

Locals in the Limelight
Beginning in the first half of the 20th century, Oxnard
has served as an escape for actors, artists, musicians
and producers seeking refuge from the chaotic mix
of Angeleno life. After an influx of Hollywood stars
- including Clark Gable, Charlie Chaplin and John
Wayne - famous musicians started to follow, flocking
to the city's coastal neighborhoods. From iconic '60s
duo Sonny and Cher to Nirvana drummer and Foo
Fighters front man Dave Grohl, Oxnard continues
to be a home-base for some of the biggest names in
music.
Oxnard has produced plenty of stars, too. Bigname artists such as Oxnard native and Grammy
winner Anderson .Paak got their start right here in

Rock 'n' Roll Landmark
The L.A. Times called it "a place of such hyper-coolness
that it operated without any buzz at all." The publication was referring to Oxnard's Teatro - a rundown
cinema turned recording studio, where some of rock
'n' roll's most famous artists have imprinted their
musical signature, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young,
Iggy Pop and Kenny Rogers, to name just a few. Willie
Nelson famously recorded an entire album here
in 1998, using the building's iconic fa├žade for the
album's cover.
Closed in 2000, the recording studio remains padlocked behind Teatro's doors - a slice of music history hidden away on the corner of Oxnard Boulevard
and Sixth Street.
