|New Years Eve with the Creepy Creeps 12.31.2019|
It's been awhile since I've really posted anything about music. Obviously, part of the reason is that music has shut down, so it's a little painful to think too much about it, but also I had been so busy writing for SoundDiego and still doing newsletters and socials for the Casbah that I kinda let the pandemic take over my site. And no offense to readers, I appreciate all the support, but though I may seem quite angry or stressed out, I've found the exercise of watching the daily briefings and aggregating important articles to be quite therapeutic for me. If I can write it down, I can release if from my mind and be free of the worry. So anyway, there are a lot of things happening in the music world, and there are plenty of ways to follow all of the livestreams and free things that are coming out....Consequence of Sound, Bands In Town, Paste, KCRW, NPR, Noisey and many many others are keeping running lists, so you can find all of that on your own, but I'm just sharing a few nuggets below. After the jump.
The Casbah is participating in some upcoming livestream shows. The artists sell tickets customized for each participating venue, then the venue gets a cut of the ticket sales. This one is a little different because it's with Waxahatchee and she's doing 5 different shows, one for each of her records, so you can tune in to one for $15, or all five for $50, or all five and a poster for $60. Pretty sweet, and Casbah gets a portion of ticket sales, so if you're trying to find ways to keep our small venues alive, this is one way to do it.

The Casbah has been asking staff to put together YouTube playlists over the past several weeks. I'm still working on mine, but as I've been thinking about mine, I put together a massive playlist of 94 videos, all of which I shot at the Casbah over the past 15 years or so, through various qualities of cameras. Feel free to peruse or jump around the playlist, and if you don't mind, you can subscribe to my channel.
Check out the new video of Jason Mraz with Tiffany Haddish. A little too reggae for my tastes, but San Diegans sure do love that sound.
