Jeff's Weekly Pick: Transfer @ Beauty Bar April 7, 2010

What are trends for if you can't buck them every once in a while. Even though this weekly addition has been relatively short lived, until now all recommendations have been for out of town touring bands/artists. There are always great shows happening around San Diego every week, some featuring touring artists from all points of the map. However, most of the live local music events offer the concert goers the chance to primarily see local artists in a variety of venues both large and small.
I noticed one of San Diego's favorite locals, Transfer, was headlining a show this Wednesday @ The Beauty Bar in City Heights. The venue is a great place to watch a show, due to its intimacy and the room technically being outdoors. (covered by a canvas canopy). This gives the patrons the option of hanging in the bar area or stepping "outside" into the show area. If you haven't had the opportunity to see Transfer, this is a band that is ready to break out of our cozy market at any time. Other projects aside , the members are at their best in this ensemble. Having recently returned from a successful trip to Austin for SXSW, shows are a mix of fan favorites as well as songs from their recently released effort, Future Selves. Their live set combines both intensity and what I view as a growing confidence that comes from touring and maturity. Don't miss this show, it will well be worth your time.

Scanners and The Lyon Crowns set the stage.
