Chromeo at Soma

Chromeo at Soma

By: Becky Foreman The lights dim in the already-packed venue, and then you hear it: “Chrom-e-oh, oh-ohhh”. (Think the Wizard of Oz monkey-chant meets 80’s-esque funk-rock). Their INTRO has begun! The transition into their first full song, Night by Night, blends seamlessly and so begins the dance party. Dave 1 and P-Thugg make up the duo that is Chromeo, and they’ve brought the funk to San Diego this Wednesday night. In an all-ages venue that can be hard to fill, […]

World Premiere: Spero’s “Living in the Night” Music Video

World Premiere: Spero’s “Living in the Night” Music Video

On a midnight voyage deep into the San Diego desert, the ListenSD crew get weird while filming a music video for the El Cajon band Spero’s song “Living in the Night”. With circus freaks, creepy crawlers, face paint, scary masks and more, director and producer Summer Luu captured a eerie mystical magic that only happens when the sun goes down. Here is the exclusive world premiere of Spero‘s “Living in the Night”:

King Tuff at the Irenic

King Tuff at the Irenic

By: Samantha Shaffer Halloween came early this year with King Tuff’s first stop of his Black Moon Spell tour at the Irenic last week. The venue was decked out in spooky, psychedelic skulls and creatures, which surprisingly did not seem out of place for this tiny church venue. Up first were local punks, Grand Tarantula, who were sadly performing their last show under that name for legal reasons. Despite that, they started their set with a bang almost as electrifying […]

The Pixies and Royal Blood at Humphrey’s By The Bay

The Pixies and Royal Blood at Humphrey’s By The Bay

The coolest people were hanging out at a sold-out Humphrey’s show last Saturday night. Fans were there to rock out to legendary rock band, The Pixies. And those who arrived a little bit late missed out on one of the greatest opening bands I’ve seen in a long time, Royal Blood, who sound like Jack White and Muse put together.

Top 5 Picks: La Luz

Top 5 Picks: La Luz

Check out La Luz‘s Top 5 Picks and don’t miss out on seeing them tonight at Soda Bar!   1. Wye Oak – Sick Talk Currently obsessing over Sick Talk by Wye Oak. It starts with a simple one note groove with tasty bass fills and drum pauses that sit underneath a very interesting vocal melody. By the time they get to the first chorus the whole song opens up and blasts you into a cosmic wonderland. – Lena 2. Unknown […]

Gardens & Villa at the Casbah

Gardens & Villa at the Casbah

By: Amanda Martinek It’s hard for me to write objectively about a Gardens & Villa show, considering after meeting them earlier this year at ListenSD’s One Year Anniversary show, little cartoon hearts pop up in my eyes every time I see them. Not only are these guys some of the nicest, most genuine human beings I’ve ever met in my entire life, but their live performance only seems to get better with time. But first things first, the show opened […]

ODESZA at Belly Up

ODESZA at Belly Up

Last Sunday night, ListenSD caught ODESZA play an amazing set at our local Belly Up Tavern. The electronic music duo from Seattle blew away the crowd, playing an array of songs from their latest album, In Return, and previous EPs: My Friends Never Die and Summer’s Gone. Check out some of our photos from the show! Photos by: Summer Luu

Review: Lowell and Young Summer at Soda Bar

Review: Lowell and Young Summer at Soda Bar

By: David Lopez de Arenosa If you couldn’t get tickets to ODESZA’s sold out show at the Belly up on Sunday then indie pop sensation Lowell and equally sensational Young Summer were a more than adequate Plan B. Playing to about thirty people at the ever intimate Soda Bar on El Cajon Blvd, just about everyone got a piece of the action as the two female fronted bands rocked the stage with their dance-y beats and sweet ballads. Young Summer […]
