Sacramento, California rockers TESLA will receive the key to the city from their hometown mayor Kevin Johnson today (Wednesday, December 7) at 12 (noon) at the Sacramento Rock And Radio Museum at 20th and I streets (in the building that once housed Crabshaw Corner and The Oasis Ballroom).
Commented the band: “We are very honored.”
Known as the originators of the “unplugged” craze of the ’90s, California rockers TESLA launched the 20th-anniversary tour last month of their legendary “Five Man Acoustical Jam” in full acoustic fashion in support of their new album, “Twisted Wires And The Acoustic Sessions”.
TESLA released “Twisted Wires And The Acoustic Sessions” in Europe on July 25 via Scarlet Records. The CD, which came out in North America on July 12, features six songs that were recorded back in 2005 at bassist Brian Wheat‘s J Street Recorders studio — which also serve as the last recordings with original member Tommy Skeoch — and six newly recorded tracks, including acoustic remakes of songs from TESLA‘s entire catalog and two brand new songs, “Second Street” and “Better Off Without You”.
