Upcoming House of Blues San Diego shows & ticket giveaway

Upcoming House of Blues San Diego shows & ticket giveaway

House of Blues San Diego is no stranger to great lineups- I personally have seen some of my favorite big name shows there over the years. But, what’s extra rad is that they also make room in their solid schedule for up-and-coming artists. The venue’s prime location and relatively intimate setting make it a superb spot […]

Friday Find – “Kind of Blue” by Teenage Exorcists – 4/18/14

One wonderful side effect of being friends with other music writers in town is being turned on to great music. Marissa Mortati of Of Shows and Burritos and I regularly send each other info on local bands and touring acts coming to town. But when the fabulous Miss Mortati suggested I check out Riverside group Teenage […]

Movie & a wine – Back to the Future: Part III & perhaps the weirdest wine pairing in history

My good buddy Cody Thompson, of ThreeBZine.com, and some friends of his – Dr. Gonzalo Quintero of Craft Beer Tasters LLC and Eugene Abano of Reviews Galore – have been doing something a little out of the ordinary with their respective websites (visit the links to catch up): They take movies they know (love?) and pair them with their drink of choice.

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). Between writing articles, taking (shitty) pictures, and researching for upcoming deadlines I let my baby SiSD go by the wayside. Poor […]

Music (and romance) is in the air…

In honor of this silly little holiday I’ve put together a list of great local bands who happen to feature a couple in their lineup. Whether they fell for one another making rad tunes or decided to put together a band after making sweet music off stage these are some of our favorites. Who are […]

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 […]
