This is my 5,000th entry on San Diego: Dialed In. I really wish I had something epic to say or I could go into a fake-Oscars speech and start thanking people and being subtly self-congratulatory but really, I just want to thank everyone who continues to read my site. I've been on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster lately and I seriously would lose my mind if I didn't have such amazing friends and family and music to feed my soul.
I will use this opportunity to be super-promo girl, however, and remind you of some upcoming shows.
- Thursday Night is SoundDiego Live at McFadden's featuring Stephen Rey and the Slicks, Kera & The Lesbians, and the Garage To Glory winner. It's FREE and you can RSVP here and come hang out with me and the rest of the SoundDiego team.
- This Friday is The Howls CD release party at the Casbah with Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels, Family Wagon, and Old Tiger. Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek will be joining The Howls for some songs and it promises to be a really good night. The record is phenomenal and you're gonna want to get your hands on a copy.
- Saturday night is the big Bring On The Bright Lights show at 4th&B featuring one of my all time favorite bands, Nada Surf. The Soft Pack, Cuckoo Chaos, and Republic of Letters will open the show. Grab tickets here.
- The last event is a 'save the date'...Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels have their album release show at the Casbah on February 18. They'll be joined by The Blackout Party, Black Sands, and The Fire Eaters in the Atari lounge. I can't wait for you all to hear this record because I feel like I've been a part of the band's process for the last year. You can buy tickets in advance here.
Finally, my friends over at Cantaloop Media interviewed me and made me their Local Spotlight. Check it out and support the local scene, not just in San Diego but in Tijuana, too!
thank you. all of you.
