San Diego Music Awards….Vote Daily

We started our journey a good number of years back, but only a handful of months ago did we enter this wonderful community we never knew anything about. The San Diego music scene has been the warmest house to us; through it we’ve made friends, family, we’ve learned, we’ve triumphed, have been inspired and so on. Everyday we are grateful of where we are and of all of you, and everyday you all seem to have more love for us. We have been nominated for this year’s Best Alternative Band and Best New Artist for the San Diego Music Awards. The honor in even being on the same list as a lot of our friends and all these other amazing artists is genuinely overwhelming. We never expected this, thank you San Diego. If we don’t win an award, that’s alright with us, we just ask that you give all these artists a fair chance and try to check them out live. You can vote here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sdma2015 and please, please continue to support local music.

Our next shows:
Saturday August 22nd at the Casbah San Diego with fellow nominees Gloomsday, The Rosalyns, and The Loons.

Monday August 24th at The OfficeBARSD with Balms, Quali, and Splavender part of Mirror Mondaze

Saturday August 29th ALL AGES SHOW with Americana nominees Action Andy & The Hi-tones, and our Tijuana changos Los Kung Fu Monkeys at The Irenic!!!

We love you San Diego, California see you in the crowd.

Get Wet Fest

You save the date?

Because Friday July 3rd we will be throwing the biggest minifest in IB pre-gaming for freedom day on the 4th. Hosted by MR. TIM PYLES of SoundDiego, 91X – San Diego, and 91X Loudspeaker.

We are inviting some of the best bands in San Diego to party with all you people in the effort to motivate the hungry music scene of Imperial Beach – a classic beach town with a great sense of community and a promising youth. THIS WILL BE AN ALL AGES EVENT. EVERYONE IS INVITED!

We’re doing this in association with Jus’ Sayin’ (link at the bottom), a non profit organization to feed San Diego’s homeless, so you can get in with a box of donations i.e. old clothes, canned foods, etc.

Otherwise tickets are $8 or $10 and you get a free taco. That’s right, there will be a legit taquero onsite, making tacos for you hungry Wet-Festers. For those 21+, THERE WILL BE BEER.

Event schedule:
DOORS: 5:00pm
Traffic Bear (members of Big Bad Buffalo ): 5:30pm
Bad Kids: 6:15pm
Fake Tides: 6:35pm
True Stories: 7:15pm
The Cardielles: 8:00pm
Flaggs:8:45
The Schizophonics: 9:30pm
The Bassics: 10:15pm
Shady Francos: 11:00pm
CLOSING: 11:30pm

Make sure to save this date if you haven’t already and invite the whole world. This will be as great as you make it, but BETTER, so get down and fuck shit up.

Again, ALL AGES $8. ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO POST ON THE EVENT. INVITE THE WORLD!


Jus’ Sayin’ is a great organization dedicated to feeding and clothing San Diego’s homeless every month. We’ve worked with them before and anything that you can donate would be truly appreciated. https://www.facebook.com/groups/JusSayin.US/?fref=ts
