The San Diego Music Awards is an event that takes place every year celebrating local San Diego music and honoring some of the best SD bands. This event will take place Sunday Sept. 12th and will certainly be a must-attend.
This year’s nominees include some LMN favorites such as The Silent Comedy, Endoxi, Dirty Sweet, and Get Back Loretta…as well as some bands that have a place on my personal “to watch” list (Scarlett Symphony, The Loons, Republic of Letters, Transfer, The Burning of Rome, White Apple Tree, Nervous Wreckords, etc.). Most excitedly (for me at least), the list of nominees contains many names that I am unfamiliar with, presenting an opportunity to investigate new music!
Here is the list…
Let’s start listening!
p.s. to get you started, a sampling of songs from nominees who happen to be playing in Los Angeles at The Viper Room THIS WEEK!
Transfer at The Viper Room Thursday July 29th (11pm)
Dirty Sweet at The Viper Room Friday July 30th (11pm)
Nervous Wreckords at The Viper Room Saturday July 31st (9pm)
And Happy Monday Evening to you all. I know this is a bit late but I’m just finishing up my very last finals week and celebrating graduation from college. That might have confused you a bit… Point being, I’m in my very last finals week so it’s been a bit crazy on my end. Let’s get down to the good stuff though. Looks like an excellent jam packed week ahead of us! Thursday and Saturday are the nights to be out and about. I wish there were more of me so I could get to everything. Alas, teleportation is not yet available and it would take too long to clone myself…
Also, we best not forget The Silent Comedy, Dirty Sweet, etc at the North Park Theater on Friday night. That is a must see show!
