Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 10/17-10/23

I found myself at a loss of what to say today. Mostly because I’ve spent my day and will continue to spend my day rushing around in order to complete everything that must be done today. Yours truly decided to take a spontaneous trip this week to see a band since my last travel plans to see a band were thwarted when said band broke up. I’m headed off to New York to see The Silent Comedy boys rock The Bowery Ballroom among other locales. I had also planned on having a new phone during the trip but alas, it won’t be here till tomorrow when I leave. In the meantime, I have to go out to the horses, clean house, and pack. Oh and I have to get my mom at the airport as well. I have tix to see AWOLNATION tonight but that clearly isn’t going to happen.

But, San Diego has some lovely shows this week. Get out there for me since I’ll be gone 🙂

Amanda’s SD Show Calendar 8/29-9/4

So, I tried to be a good person and get this post out yesterday because I have school Mondays and Wednesdays. This obviously didn’t happen and it might have had something to do with the fact that I was at a shoot all day. Exhausting and wonderful though it was, I was not able to compose my post. However, you should take the time to look up SD Soundsystem. They have been doing some really cool stuff with some really cool bands and I’m thankful to be a small part of it.

Anyways, the day is still early, school is done and I can do what I’m here to do today….

Amanda’s SD Show Calendar 1/24-1/30

Hello my SD Music Folks! This early post comes at you from the wonderful city of New York. Kristen and I ended up here after another one of our wonderful east coast adventures. We started in Philly for a reunion show and ended up catching 3 shows in one night! But that is really her story to share. We then trekked over to New York to see Spiderman: Turn off the Dark on Broadway. It was so lovely to see the Carney guys again. Even if it’s on a different kind of stage. Love them!
