TWIN PEAKS @ THE IRENIC – A Photo Gallery

On April 20th, the boys of Twin Peaks made a stop at the holy venue known as The Irenic, for the San Diego stop of their tour. Church by day and rock concert by night, The Irenic never seems to disappoint, whether the show be local or just another stop in the US. The latter was the case last Thursday, as Chicago natives, Twin Peaks, were welcomed by a surplus of crowd-surfers and sweaty concert connoisseurs. They headlined the show with Hinds, a lo-fi female group from Madrid. Although we were not able to take photos for the girl’s set, we did snag a photo pass for Twin Peaks.

Downtown Boys @ Soda Bar 4/16/17

A few years ago I found myself asking “Why does listening to politically and socially conscious music tend to be a phase people grow out of as they get older?” Is it that the exuberant passion they once had for it during their more formative years vanished as they transitioned more into adulthood? Did they just become apathetic? Because certainly the subject matter is never childish, and the issues addressed usually affect mostly adults.

Soup Kitchen Rock – An Interview With San Francisco Band, Weird Fun

Weird Fun is, as they like to call it, a “soup kitchen rock,” band from San Francisco CA. The group consists of Mitchell Marinaro (vocals and rhythm guitar), Grace Cardinale (drums), Alex Santana (lead guitar), River Manochio (bass) and Alex Varni (“hype man”). Let me just put out there, on the record, if you haven’t seen this group live, you haven’t been going to the right shows man.
