Little Hurricane Blow Back Into Town

On April 2nd, Little Hurricane will blow back into San Diego for a show at the Casbah.

The San Diego duo made quite the splash around town last year, winning a San Diego Music Award for Best New Artist, rocking Rocktoberfest, and becoming the first band to perform for the Owl and Bear-programmed SoundDiego Sessions. But, just as we were getting to know and love them, Little Hurricane left San Diego to tour the country with no return date in sight.

Their wanderings may not be at an end yet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t come back and visit once in a while, and they’ll do just that on April 2nd for their CD release party at the Casbah. Also playing that night: Get Back Loretta, River City, and Low Volts. Continue reading…

Golden Red Release EP, Play Soda Bar

Golden Red

San Diego’s favorite purveyors of ominously sweet folk, Golden Red, are adding a touch of black to their palette. The band is set to drop their debut EP, titled Sad Loud Black Sound, later this week. To celebrate the release, the quintet will be playing a show at the Soda Bar this Friday, June 12, alongside fellow rustic acts River City and Silverleaf.

The five-song EP consists of three familiar tracks—”October”, “Near Dark“, and “Sad Loud Black Sound”—as well as the previously unheard “Down In The Quarry” and “Alabaster”. Each copy of the self-produced EP comes adorned with a handmade cover, individually drawn and numbered by the multitasking band.

Golden Red’s Americana-infused ditties sound rich and carefree, but in case you’re neither, they’ve still got you covered. The EP is priced to own at a measly three dollars, and the show is free, so you really have no excuse not to come down and immerse yourself in all the folky goodness.
