Two killer indie pop bands both captured in dreamy photographs that make you wish you could have felt it all for yourself. But if you’re like me, (Kyla) and couldn’t make it to the show (probably because I live across the country), this photo gallery will have to do!
Men I Trust was genuine and captivating with their performance, keeping the audience relaxed and dancing throughout the night with their relaxed but groovy music.
Between the recent release of synth-pop masterpiece ‘Screen Memories’ and the increasing anticipation of his next album, ‘Addendum,’ John Maus is selling out shows across the US. This past Tuesday night at Teragram Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles was no exception.
Returning to San Diego after their single release, ‘Heart’, Slow Hollows delivered a hard hitting close for the Thursday night. Supported by Bad Kids and Raener, the crowd swayed from surf-punk to electro-pop between each set.
As 2017 came to an end, local music lovers came together at Queen Bees for a good cause to benefit Feeding San Diego, an organization that helps the hungry in the community.
Vulnerable is the the best way I can describe the stage persona of Sloppy Jane: the front woman spewing blue goo from her mouth and proceeding to strip naked in front of the crowd, the presentation of Sloppy Jane is raw, honest, and unapologetic. It’s one of those things that makes you wonder what the hell you just walked into, but is extremely empowering all the same.
On July 29th, 2017, fourteen bands gathered to support the San Diego chapter of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The all day festival starting at 2:30pm and going till 10:30pm, was filled with amazing music, great food, and a little over a hundred people excited and ready to support the music and the cause.
On May 23rd, 2017, at the House of Blues in San Diego, hundreds of fans lined up to see the British rock band, Catfish and the Bottlemen. With the tour bus parked out front and fans lining up since 7AM, it was evident that this was going to be a night to remember.
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.
Two was the magic number at the long-awaited YAGTHT Fest down at Soma San Diego. Fest number two, two stages, two magic words. What two words could have such an enormous meaning behind them? If you guessed The Frights, you were right. You Are Going To Hate This Fest TWO – let me try and sum it up for you, hour by hour, band by band.
Thought a concert couldn’t happen in a backyard? Ask the overflowing crowd that showed up to support local indie surf-punk band, Bad Kids, and think again. Just two days ago, the guys of Bad Kids, (Bassist: Arturo Macias, Drummer: Leon Lara, Guitarist: Ray Hamilton, Keys: Chad Boland, and Vocalist: Kalani Lomu) along with Fake Tides, Los Shadows, Instinct, Spooky Cigarette, and T.Rexico threw the wildest and most memorable house show to ever exist in Imperial Beach.
