As I previously mentioned, I absolutely LOVED attending North Park Music Thing (NPMT) this past weekend down in San Diego. Saturday night was especially euphoric to me as we got the unique opportunity to venue hop, sampling so many bands…and just about every single one fit on my scale somewhere between highly enjoyable and mind blowingly brilliant. So much great new music, it was overwhelming to say the least.
I was inspired to put together a new mini music mix based on the bands and artists we was able to see. Check them out!
Wow! What a crazy weekend that was. For those of you who don’t know, Kristen and I spent our Friday and Saturday taking part in the North Park Music thing. It was awesome conferences such as; Touring on a Budget, Future of Radio, Technology and Music, and a keynote speech by Kim Fowley during the day and music all night long. We spent our Friday night with Endoxi, The Dirges, Republic of Letters, and The Silent Comedy. Saturday was spent discovering tons of new music (and enjoying some old) such as Delaney Gibson, The Makepeace Brothers, The Union Line, Citizen Band, Lady Danville, Astra Kelley, Shaimus, and The Rescues. Such a blast!
