Carbon City Lights became one of the Central Coast's most popular bands in 2018. This year, they played the Live Oak Music Festival. Band founder Michael Venia moved to SLO from Toronto Canada in 2011. His original songs ring with influences of Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay, and Pearl Jam. Videos of his alternative indie rock songs have topped the "most viewed" charts on YouTube, and have also aired on radio and TV shows. Carbon City Lights is set to release its seventh studio album this year, entitled “We’re Going to Dream”. Preview some tracks at https://www.carboncitylights.com/music/
