Wednesday night will be a great night for music in San Diego. The Transit War's Mike Frey will be celebrating the release of his new solo project ...students' new album "New Habits" at Ruby Room. Frey started recording this album 2 years ago with friend Ilan Rubin of Nine Inch Nails/The New Regime fame after The Transit War went their separate ways. Frey has assembled an all star line up as a backing band with members of Spell Toronto, Denver Harbor, and Ilan Rubin will be making his first appearance on drums since last performing with NIN at the Wiltern Theatre in September. If you are a fan of Beck, Blur, Death Cab For Cutie, Julian Casablancas you will dig this. ...students new album is out today and available digitally only.
Also on the bill are brooklyn band Ultra Violent Lights which feature ex members of Fenix TX and Jubillee. The band released their debut album "Here in Filth" in November and have been crossing the US since. If you like Nirvana, Echo and the Bunnymen, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club you will love this band.
(Opening the show is Blessed Deep Band, and they're friends of one of my favorites, Low Red Land from SF, so get there early and show some love. -r)
