Jeff's Weekly Pick: Diego Garcia @ Anthology Saturday, June 4, 2011

For those unfamiliar with the New York based indie rock band Elefant, led by singer Diego Garcia, released three albums before officially calling it quits last year. The albums reflected sounds of The Cure and other 80s inspired music. Garcia was born in the US, eventually settling in New York to pursue a career in music, with an economics degree as a financial backup. Raised in Argentina, Diego started playing acoustic guitar in his teens and has gone back to his musical roots since going it on his own. The recently released Laura, on upstart Latin label Nacional Records, is nothing short of phenomenal. The title is in reference to Garcia’s wife, and he definitely has found a musical style that suits him. The songs flow with ease from start to end and is a must listen. Radio station KCRW has been promoting the talented singer songwriter and deservedly so. San Diego gets its opportunity to see Diego Garcia live this Friday at the beautiful supper club Anthology. This should be the perfect venue for Diego to showcase his talent. Don’t miss this artist as a great way to spend a romantic Saturday night.
