Friday Find – “The Shortcut” by Brothers Weiss – 4/11/14

Brothers Weiss returns from their first tour tonight! [More on that over at San Diego Uptown News.] In honor of the dudes’ homecoming I chose my favorite song from their EP Conversations for this Friday Find. I particularly like the plaintive vocals on this one which match the poetic lyrics. Plus I’m impressed any time the word […]

Slighted Sounds in San Diego

Slighted Sounds in San Diego

I’ve definitely fallen off the blogging wagon in the past few months. Of course this is due largely to the fact that I’m currently writing for half a dozen print publications each month (yes, I’m bragging).

Conversations: An Interview with Kevin Weiss of Brothers Weiss

One reason I chose Brothers Weiss as a band you should go see in 2014 (yes, I’m bossy) is that I knew their EP release for Conversations was right around the corner. Another reason is that they fucking rock. The release is now upon us and the dudes have gone about introducing fans to the […]

Where You Want to Be: The Lonely Wild’s Residency at Soda Bar – January 7, 14, 21, & 28

I’m a newfound fan of The Lonely Wild, but I have to say the band is instantly addicting and I haven’t stopped devouring their tunes since I started.
