Quicksand @ House of Blues- 01.25.13


Last Friday night New Youk post-hardcore legends Quicksand rolled through San Diego as a part of their first North American tour in over ten years.  An eager Friday night crowd had lined the sidewalk from the box office to Broadway almost an hour before openers Title Fight kicked off the evening.  Given that Quicksand's established fan base is in their thirties for the most part, it was interesting to see the line filled with a much younger fans eager for taste of what proved to be an impressively polished and expectedly intense set.  While the four piece immediately barreled into a set puling equally from their two studio albums, it took the crowd a while to catch up.  Once they did, a 20' mosh pit opened up in the middle of the main floor, much to the band's visible pleasure.  It's always good to see sweat-drenched, smiling faces as fans make their way to the exit and these middle aged rockers were more than happy to accommodate.

Newsy Stuff: Hollywood Bowl, The Void Soft Opening

I don't really know why I'm up at the moment seeing as Tuesday is going to be a pretty busy day, but sometimes I just have really productive days and why stop if you're on a roll and not really tired? So I thought I'd share a couple things while I'm listening to music and sorting through the inbox.

Hollywood Bowl Releases 2013 Lineup I just happened to glance at Facebook for a second when I saw that the Hollywood Bowl has announced their 2013 lineup. It has been a few years since I've been to the legendary venue, but it is a pretty special place to see a show. I gotta say besides Rodrigo y Gabriela, nothing seems worth the trek at the moment, but they always seem to add some major spectacular shows with contemporary artists backed by the Philharmonic. Or maybe I'm living in 2006. Whatever the case, the schedule is out.

The Void Celebrates a Soft Opening: Tonight (Tuesday), Eleven becomes The Void and naturally you're invited to hang out and celebrate. The lineup: THE VOID SOFT OPENING - PRIMITIVE NOYES, PURPLE//IMAGE (SUN ARAW), MYSTERY CAVE, ASHA, BILL WESLEY, 100 LBS OF SMOKE - DJS DEADAIR AND MARIO ORDUNO. The show is free so check it out. Kelsey says they expect the new sign sometime today and since I'll be nearby, I'll try to shoot a photo or two when it happens. For those of you who don't know, The Void (Formerly Eleven, Radio Room, Zombie Lounge, et al) is located at 35th and El Cajon Boulevard.

And a couple links I came across...I skipped NAMM this year because I just couldn't rationalize going to Anaheim in the rain when I had other fun local stuff lined up, but it always takes place around the same time as MIDEM which always seems to be a learning experience, even if you're just chasing the hashtag #MIDEM on Twitter. This was an interesting speech about the current business of music by Martin Mills, founder of Beggars Banquet, as he won an Icon Award.

Finally, I meant to post this link about Annoying Concert Behaviors last week because I found it amusing but then it wasn't really that funny so I didn't. But here it is anyway. Obviously as a blogger, I'm pretty much guilty of anything regarding social media, smart phones, or photos, but I also thought the author dated himself with number 8. Way to stay current on the name drops.

Tuesday Night: Niki & The Dove at the Casbah

[This is written by Kristian Zaspel, my bestie from back in the day who you know as a bartender at URBN, Seven Grand, being a social media baller at My SMN, or from pictures from his recent Turista Libre birthday party, but regardless, Kristian is one of those guys that I trust and respect when it comes to his music opinion. He couldn't remember his login and even though I sent him a new one, he's too busy being a dad and running the world to get on here and post for you. So here it is. Niki & The Dove. -rosemary]

One would think that Niki & The Dove are aliens from an intergalactic, funktified planet far, far away, but they're actually just from Sweden. In the electronic music world though, Sweden is about the closest thing we have to another planet. Acts such as The Knife, Little Dragon, Miike Snow, Lykke Li and Robyn have been churning out metaphysical jams effortlessly on the regular. So much so that I wouldn't be surprised if Sweden's number one export changed from machinery and motor vehicles to catchy hooks and funky beats.

Malin Dahlström (vocals) and Gustaf Karlöf (production) started creating music together in Feb 2010 and haven't looked back. Niki & The Dove recently won the 2013 European Border Breakers Award (honor to best new music acts in Europe) and their music has been getting comparisons to Prince, Fleetwood Mac, Cindy Lauper and trashy Europop. Hell, even snotty, uber hipster, tastemakers even like their album:

Fortunately for us, Niki & The Dove will be bringing their other worldly, dancefloor beats to The Casbah tomorrow at 8:30pm for only $15. I guarantee this will be the last time they play a venue this small for that price. Added bonus, Vacationer is opening and while they're only from Philadelphia, they're still pretty damn good.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 28-31, 2013,

What a weekend. I'm gonna just glaze over Friday's Quicksand show other than thanking Christy and Brian and Robin and Darren for taking care of me. There are no words for my gratitude. Saturday and Sunday were relatively normal though I have to say that last night was pretty amazing with some family time, then time with Darren that included a jaunt to Coronado to try and play late night tennis (too late), Ken Stringfellow at Soda Bar, ping pong at Triple Crown, an almost full-moon 2 am bike ride, and a dog walk which is a nice way to clear your brain before a Monday. There are some great shows this week...Kristian has a post coming about Niki and The Dove, Geographer is sold out, and Thursday has some pretty great options. Tuesday through Thursday listings are after the jump.

Coachella 2013 Official Lineup Released

Friday Night Preview- Quicksand @ House of Blues

Tomorrow night the House of Blues welcomes very special guests- NYC's own post-hardcore
legends Quicksand.  After building a dedicated fan base following the release of their two albums in the early- mid '90's and relentless touring across Europe and North America, the band dissolved due to the always unfortunate 'internal conflicts'.  Despite efforts to put out new music and tour in the late '90s, the band was destined for relegation to the album shelves and collective memory of those who connected with the Fugazi-esque rock the four piece is known for.  That changed late last year when, following appearances in New York and Los Angeles at FYF Fest (see Tim's writeup and photos here), the band announced dates for their first North American tour in fifteen years.  Tomorrow night San Diego has the pleasure of being on that list.

Doors at 7:30, openers Title Fight hit the stage at 8:30.  Tickets available through the Casbah website or at the box office.  See you there.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 24-27, 2013

The short week is nearly over and it appears that our brief stint of summer-like weather will take a break and make way for cooler temperatures, but you're in SAN DIEGO! Did you see it's like 40 below in Wisconsin? So maybe you can't keep wearing your flip flops at night, but you can still get out and enjoy our awesome music scene. Don't forget that tonight is SoundDiego Live at the Casbah with free food from Lucha Libre and complimentary Jack Daniel's if you RSVP for the list. Doors are at 7pm, so don't be late! Thursday through Sunday archives are after the jump.

Newsy Bits & Bulletins: NPFoA, The Void, Sleep Train Amphitheatre, Che Cafe and more.

There was a time when I'd sit at my desk in my office and just pounce on new news related to San Diego or music or festivals. Perhaps I just figure everyone has the same information at their fingertips or perhaps I've lost my edge or maybe I've just been finger-wagged too many times for posting things prematurely that I just don't feel that urgency to be first or break stories. Maybe I'd rather just link you to other sources so I don't get the backlash of incorrect information. Or maybe I have been having too much fun freelancing and not being confined to a desk or laptop all day that I just figure I'll get to all of it some other time. Whatever it is, there have been some things mulling around my brain that I've been meaning to share, so I'll get to it in one long post. If you don't take the time to read, you can blame yourself for not knowing later. North Park Festival of Arts open for band submissions, Cricket becomes Sleep Train Amphitheatre, Eleven becomes The Void, Che Cafe Cracks down on bigotry, Givit sends you to SXSW, CityBeat Demo about all of it after the jump.

Rosey's Diary: New Year, Fun Times

The other day I was at the park with Darren and his daughter when he turned to me and said, "I bet last summer you didn't see yourself spending your days hanging at the park with a bunch of kids." The comment choked me up a little bit and really got me thinking, probably more than he intended with his simple observation. We were running around, joining in on games of hide n seek and climbing monkey bars and making batches of sand cookies and I was thinking even further back than last summer...the difference in my life from a year ago to now is beyond words. I kinda buried it in this post from a year ago, my 5,000th post on this site,  but I was pretty much a walking disaster and on an emotional tailspin.

Things have definitely turned around and it's not just the parks, but work is good and steady, my apartment is officially "home" (even with frequent water & power outages from street construction), and as you can tell from the declined frequency of diaries and posts, I'm spending more time actually enjoying San Diego instead of spending my days writing about it from this horizontal position on my bed that is the reason we call these devices 'laptops'. So no, Darren, I didn't have any idea that my days would involve meandering bike rides, playing in parks, shooting arrows, braiding hair, table tennis in rec centers, frequent trips to Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, open space hikes, San Diego River Cleanups, 24 hour dates, getting back on the tennis court, and just lazing in bed by choice instead of the lack of will or energy to get out, but all of this in addition to my regular night life and shows and I feel like a more full and well-rounded human being. All the sunshine and rainbows makes for a really boring blog, but since I haven't really posted a diary since mid-November, I thought I'd sort of get to it before I attack the 600 emails waiting for me. If you dare/care, after the jump.

Weekend Show Recommendations January 25-27, 2013

As the month of January is nearing its end, the momentum for live music shows is building. This means touring bands as well as locals begin to ramp (up) their schedules, resulting in a greater number of shows being offered. After perusing the upcoming weekend listings, several shows grabbed my attention. Friday night brings a great show to Winston's in OB, featuring The Heavy Guilt and Orange County rockers The Steelwells. The other show of note on Friday is down at the Casbah, where North County residents Dead Feather Moon hit the stage after Blackout Party and The Beautiful View. My first choice for Saturday will take me to the UCSD campus for a great show with two of LA's better bands, El Ten Eleven and Races, at The Loft. A solid backup would be San Diego's own The Donkeys, who are headlining a show at The Griffin. If you prefer to go there, make sure and arrive early to catch opener Social Studies from San Francisco. Dead Meadow will bring their heavy rock to the Casbah on Saturday, making this a great night of shows. Wrapping up the weekend this Sunday are the duo of Adam Green (The Moldy Peaches) & Binki Shapiro (No Joy) appearing at The Griffin. This show is being presented by Eric Howarth of Bring On the Bright Lights. LA's JJAMZ are opening the show and are definitely worth seeing live (SD Music Thing). The other option for Saturday features Ken Stringfellow (The Posies) and The Maldives at Soda Bar. Ken will also be appearing earlier that night at M-Theory Music (5 pm).

All in all, a packed weekend awaits, filled with great music. Most importantly, going out to support live music in San Diego is the main objective, resulting in venues being able to continue providing quality shows for the attendees.

Watch a video of Here I Am (vignette) from Adam Green & Binki Shapiro.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 20-23, 2013

I am such a liar. I swore I was going to write a ton of stuff this weekend. I even made a little list of all the things I wanted to tell you about while I was at the Casbah on Thursday night. The reality is that I've been enjoying the weather so much that working just didn't have any place this weekend. That's not to say I didn't mindlessly stare at Facebook and Twitter (and mindfully at Words With Friends), but throw in the holiday and it just has me doing some work avoidance. I'm sorry I missed the listing on the Ken Club last night, and today I'm correcting a listing for Glossary which is at Soda Bar, not Ruby Room, and is a pretty awesome show (I was listening to the record all afternoon). Sunday through Wednesday archives are after the jump.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 18-19, 2013

It has been a really great week and now the sun is back in sunny San Diego so hopefully you get out and do something fun, or consider joining up with the National Day of Service and volunteer somewhere. I've got so much to update you on, but I'll let those posts trickle in over the weekend. Friday and Saturday archives are after the jump.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 14-17, 2013

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend...between our SoundDiego contributors party, the Casbah and the 91X anniversary, some standup and and some other fun shows, I have to say it was pretty awesome, though I also enjoyed the extra blankets and firing up the wall heater as I snuggled up at home was pretty nice, too. This week is shaping up to be a good one, so take a gander at the listings for the week and get out and support those residencies. I also want to highlight a calendar change on Tuesday at Bar Pink, the show is actually Pony Death Ride's CD release show and was listed incorrectly on the venue site as Tiki Tuesday with Secret Samarai. Enjoy the week! I'll be sharing some Keane and Youngblood Hawke photos later today.

Monday, January 14, 2013:
  • Strange Vine, Family Wagon, Bruin, Spirit Vine @ Casbah

Things To Do In San Diego: January 11-13, 2013

Before I got all excited about planning a Thursday morning bike ride, I probably should've paid attention to the weather. Still,  I really can't complain about a rainy morning curled up inside after being up all night to finally work through the last 4 weeks or so of email . Darren and I will try for a bike ride again on today, hopefully the weather cooperates, though either way the day will lead into what promises to be a really fun weekend. I'll be checking out some comedy at the American Comedy Club, catching the Friday show at Soda Bar, having a party with my SoundDiego cohorts, enjoying the 91X anniversary at the House of Blues and the official 24th Anniversary Show at the Casbah on Saturday, and maybe getting some tennis in and seeing Keane on Sunday. I hope that rain or shine, your weekend is full and happy and healthy, too. Friday through Sunday archives are after the jump.

Weekend Recommendations January 11-13, 2013

For those of you who have been experiencing the post holiday live music slow down, fear not. The upcoming weekend is filled with shows worthy of your attendance. Kicking off the weekend this Friday is none other than the recently name changed trio Boy King, headlining a four band lineup at Soda Bar. Be sure to catch LA rockers Hi Ho Silver Oh, touring with their sophomore release in tow. Actress/musician Charlyne Yi and locals Mothlight round out the lineup. Saturday offers a terrific bill at the Casbah. The Howls and Mrs. Magician will be taking the stage as the month long anniversary continues at the Middletown venue. These two bands seem to be headed for bigger and better things in 2013. The Short Eyes and Teenage Burritos will get things rocking and rolling.

Sunday night marks the return of British rockers Keane to San Diego, fresh off their recently released album Strangeland. The absence of guitars has not diminished the popularity of this band. A full house is expected at the House of Blues for what promises to be an outstanding show. LA 5 piece Youngblood Hawke set the stage. If you are still yearning for a nightcap, head over to Soda Bar for Chris Brokaw (Codeine) and Jennifer O'Connor. Sounds (and looks) like a great weekend to me.

To get you in the mood, watch a video of Keane's Sovereign Light Cafe below.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 10, 2013

So I already mentioned the 91X anniversary this weekend as well as the Casbah's continuing anniversary celebration, so I'm kinda out of things to tell you, unless you care that Xiao Lewu, the new panda cub at the zoo will begin to be on exhibit to the public daily from 9:30-11:30 starting on Thursday. Pretty cute, and you can see him on the Panda Cam. Thursday archives are after the jump.

Newsy Bits: Anthology Closes, Pacific Magazine Music Feature and more...

So I have been meaning to catch up but let's just say I'm taking my time getting into the swing of a new year, and the time I set aside to write seems to disappear quickly when I'm bouncing around town on my new bike or going to the zoo or hanging with Darren or playing Words With Friends (guilty). So anyway, you've heard that 4th & B and now Anthology have closed down. I would guess that you can probably expect both venues to reopen under new owners at some point, but nobody can really be sure at this point. CityBeat covered the story quite thoroughly this week, as did the U-T, and I was on NBC news last week to chat about it (you can read their article here). I thought it would be inappropriate to mention the divorce of the owners, but apparently that is fair game and the most obvious reason behind the closure.

View more videos at:

I also meant to share the link to Pacific Magazine in case you hadn't seen the music feature yet. Me, Pyles, Tim Maze, Candace Mandracia, Johnny Shockey, and Freddie Harb were asked to make music assessments and predictions. Pretty cool, I have to say.

I really didn't have a whole lot of other stuff to talk about that I haven't mentioned already. 91X has their 30th Anniversary party this weekend so that is a pretty awesome achievement. I remember being a kid on my skateboard and listening to early versions of the station (I loved Duran Duran and Tears For Fears at the time), and we've all seen them transform over the years and endure radio ups and downs and ownership changes. Congratulations to everyone who has been a part of the station over the years.

And speaking of anniversaries...the Casbah has been around for 24 years now, and though the whole month is part of the celebration, I guess you can call this weekend the official anniversary weekend, with Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys on Friday and Mrs. Magician, The Howls, The Short Eyes, and Teenage Burritos on Saturday. You can grab Big Sandy tickets for just $5 at M-Theory.

And while I'm talking about the Casbah...a while back I Am Not A Hipster shot some scenes at the club and the movie screened at Sundance and with a couple showings around town, and if you helped Kickstart the project, you should have your DVD by now, but if you still haven't seen it, you can catch a screening on Thursday night at the Ken Cinema. Go here for information.

Ok, early morning biking means I'm going to sleep.

Things to Do in San Diego: Newtown Edition

If there is one thing I have noticed amongst the craft beer community, especially here in San Diego, it's that there is no shortage of craft beer bars in the area. If you happen to frequent one or many of these establishments, chances are you will meet like-minded people who share the same appreciation and respect that you have for the industry. It goes without saying that there is an amazing camaraderie that comes hand-in-hand (and I suppose beer-in-hand) with the craft beer industry and I have met some pretty incredible people over the years because of it. One of these people is Kerin Sovern.

I was fortunate enough to meet Kerin a couple months back. Kerin was bartending at a local establishment near my house and struck a conversation with my girlfriend and I over a few beers. She was extremely friendly and a pleasure to talk to about the different beers we were drinking. A few weeks later, I went back to the same bar and saw Kerin being interviewed by the local news. It was during that visit I learned Kerin was from Newtown, Connecticut.

Newtown, as you all may very well know, is the town that was victim to the deadly shooting spree that occurred last month in which 26 people were murdered at the hands of a young shooter. The reporters had interviewed Kerin that day about a fundraising website ( that she had started with a few other Newtown natives to support the school and victims’ families. Their mission statement on the website is as follows:
We founded Newtown Pride in response to the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2012. We all grew up in Newtown, went through the Newtown school system and know what a wonderful, loving community it is. All proceeds generated from these sales will be donated to the Sandy Hook PTSA and the victims' families. Thank you for your support.
I have spoken to Kerin recently and since they have started this website, they have been recognized on local news networks as well as CNN. They have raised over $30,000 towards the Sandy Hook PTSA and the victims’ families and continue to raise more each day. It is an incredible feat and I am extremely proud of Kerin and all the other volunteers who have made this such a successful and noble effort.

If you are at all interested in donating to the site or purchasing a t-shirt, please visit and help out a fellow friend. Afterall, if it wasn’t for that craft beer camaraderie I mentioned earlier, I would have never met Kerin and been able to participate in such an honorable cause.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 8-9, 2013

Talk about curveballs! So I really intended to update you on a whole bunch of stuff happening around San Diego. Then the weekend came up so fast and there I was, trying to get downtown to get on camera for the 11 o'clock news on NBC and I was gonna post that clip with my FULL PAGE in Pacific Magazine and act like I know stuff about stuff...and then there's my long awaited diary post that will just bore the hell out of most of you, especially since the last one was in November, and then there are band updates and venue updates and mostly I'm sure the most exciting thing I can say right now is that the Casbah has been around for 24 years and this whole month is a massive celebration of that fact. I will post all of the other things (and I meant to tonight but when power went out it was a great excuse for a date night), but mostly you need to know I'm here and I promise to catch up on everything soon enough. Not like you really need my blah blah blah, but it will come nonetheless. Tuesday and Wednesday archives are after the jump.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 3-7, 2013

I'm not really on vacation but I sure am being laid back and taking it easy this first week of 2013. I have a lot to tell you about- like the return of the great CityBeat Demo Review and this really cool video app that I was supposed to tell you about last month- but don't expect any heavy writing from me for at least another few days. I just really don't see any reason to force posts when I'd rather enjoy the short days outdoors and spend the nights buried under covers because my heater has a mind of its own and only works sporadically. I'll get around to all the good stuff soon enough, but for now, here are your listings through the next week. Archives after the jump.

Things To Do In San Diego: January 2, 2013

I don't know about you, but the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 have been nothing short of incredible. Working at the Lafayette was a little hectic, so thanks to your patience as we checked in and wristbanded nearly 1000 people throughout the course of the night. Darren was able to take a break during his long night and we got to experience the countdown and some midnight kissing was definitely in order as The Amandas rocked the lobby. It was great hanging out with so many good people at the hotel until daybreak when Darren finally got off his shift and thus began a 36 hour marathon date of sleeping in, bike riding, dinner eating, tennis playing, and walking around the emptiness of the Hotel Del, the beach, and Orange Avenue in Coronado before retiring for the night. Pretty epic way to start the year if you ask me. I have the weekend listings but will wait to post until I can take some time to format them and such. It was my error that tonight's Casbah show was not listed, so just in case you didn't know, they are open tonight. Thursday listings are after the jump and I'll hopefully have the next week up sometime later tonight.
