It's so incredibly amusing and well....so San Diego, that a year later they're all over this Visionquest/Soul Clap whatever scene incessantly.

Remember a few short summers ago when all these djs played electro-house?

You find it amusing that as deep house/tech house/techno gain popularity these artists are gaining large enough fan bases to play medium-size cities like San Diego?

7/27: Dashboard Confessional
7/29: Tucanes De Tijuana
8/3: Steel Pulse
8/4: Cake
8/10: The Offspring
8/17: Michael Franti & Spearhead
8/18: Ben Harper
8/24: Jimmy Cliff
8/31: Ozomatli
9/1: REGGAE FESTIVAL FEATURING ZIGGY MARLEY PLUS BEER FEST

The link is on their Facebook, I think the pre-sale is over now though.

The XX announced a show at Soma, tickets are $30. Also The Sheepdogs are playing in October at The Casbah! Already bought my tickets for that, they were awesome at Coachella and I can't wait!

Soma is definitely the best venue to drive yourself to because of all the Sports Arena parking, I would much rather have my mom drive me to somewhere downtown where it is impossible to find a parking spot.

Puhhhlease, parking in San Diego (even Gaslamp area) is a piece of cake compared to most other downtown areas in virtually any other city. Like....really...

When one of the few positive aspects about a venue is it's parking situation you know there's a problem. Terrible venue but it'd be cool to see The XX or Crystal Castles at a place where there's room to move.

kyleuga
07-31-2012, 05:07 PM
Soma is not that bad. I don't plan on getting blasted seeing the XX no matter what the venue is so alcohol is not a concern. It needed to be an all ages show, not too many options here....

But, you know what is worse than Soma?

Crystal Castles

Totally seeing Kendrick at Soma. Missed him for GIVERS during Coachella and heard he puts on an excellent show. Thanks for the heads up PJ.

Anyone see Cake at the Del Mar Races? Thought they sounded good but they were annoying as fuck. Was pretty disappointed with their 2-3min of bullshit in between each song. Also going to the Alabama Shakes at HoB next Thursday, can't wait!

Weezer announced a show at Harrah's Rincon Casio October 13th. Special gues JJamz (never heard of them), love Weezer though, pretty excited.

I have a love/hate relationship with soma. I love it because I've been going there since I was a wee little lad, seeing bands like strung out, nofx, etc. Now that I'm old and grumpy, I hate that its a sweatbox, no booze and little kids running around, but I'm sure thats what curmudgeons though about me when I was young and there to smoke pot and watch my favorite punk band. I still bought tickets to M83, because hell, I'd see M83 if they played in a parking lot. Should be a fun show

Anyone see BBC? I thought they were excellent, I'd love it even more to see them in the Gobi at Coachella next year. Also I managed to score tickets to M83 and Beach House through my internship! Pretty excited to see M83 as I had a terrible spot at Chella and could barely hear them.

Seen a show at that new-ish Irenic venue? Converted church run by Christians serving beer and wine and all shows are over by 10pm. Is there a two drink maximum?

Thinking about seeing Ariel Pink there. New album is incredible, better than the last one.

I saw La Sera at the Irenic last spring and the venue was ok. The sound was actually pretty good but it's just so weird milling about in a church drinking beer out of plastic cups. Think they had 2 Ballast Point beers on tap without a drink maximum.

choir-led hymns during intermission. I'm having trouble having sex with her when someone is shoving a communion wafer in my mouth. Etc.

It seems pretty cool though (i.e. a Christian church allowing these types of bands in to play normal gigs on their terms). Most of the time churches have no problem evangelizing outside the home base, but I've never seen one encourage heathen performances in their own building. It's a different story and I applaud their spirit.

I don't know if you've heard 'Wellington Road' by Strangelove, but I could see that song being "approved for church". Or U2 or Jars of Clay or something. Not Kinski's nude bath house battles in Rome. Think I'm going to check it out in support and curiosity.

Strangelove - Wellington Road

God is looking down upon the shivering ones
Shooting up down on the Wellington Road
And reaching out for their arms
But we don't wanna know
Down on the Wellington Road
Where all tomorrow's peace of mind
Is bought and sold
Oh but he never gives up on you
Oh no he never gives up on you
No no he never gives up on you
No no he never gives up on you
Up on you
Life's a little longer on the Wellington Road
Grinding teeth down 'til the money goes cold
We shake our fists at the sky
'Cos we already know
Down on the Wellington road
The only saviours left behind
Are bought and sold
Oh but he never does let you go
Oh no he never does let you go
Woah and he never gives up on you
No no he never gives up on you
Up on you
God is looking down upon the shivering ones
Shooting up down on the Wellington Road
Reaching down for their hearts
But we don't wanna know
Down on the Wellington Road
Where all tomorrow's peace and love
Are bought and sold
Oh but he never does let you go
No no he never does let you go
Woah and he never gives up on you
No no he never gives up on you
Up on you
La la la etc.
He don't give up on you

TIGER!TIGER! is probably the closest thing worth checking out. It has a great craft beer selection and good eats, although its about a mile away... Soda Bar isn't exactly situated in the best area of town. But if you head to North Park about a two minute drive there is an abundance of good food/drink options.

Ended up at City Delicatessan at the boyfriend's insistance. He's nothing if not a creature of habit. I swear we can go anywhere near San Diego without eating there.

For breakfast the next morning, we ate at Cafe on Park. He had Turkey hash (not really hash since they were turkey chunks, but still tasted great) and I had chorizo with giant slices of jalapeno. I wanted to get the Captain Crunch pancake but was afraid it would be too sweet and i'd be bouncing off the walls on the drive home.

Hahaha, when we were in town last week we walked from Tiger! Tiger! to Soda Bar for the Trust show. It looked like there was another cool spot on the walk from TT to SB called Eleven but we didn't have time to stop. We took a taxi back to the place where we were staying and the cab driver was saying the area where Soda Bar is located was pretty bad and was kind of shocked we walked over to SB.

I'll be there. All street parking is free after six, about a block north of HoB there is a pay lot, but you should be able to find some street parking in that area. There are tons of food options within walking distance. I usually just go to Horton Plaza, about a block south and grab something quick to eat. Also, make sure you go to the right entrance. The entrance to get to the concert venue is on 6th Avenue while the entrance to the restaurant is on 5th.

Finally, am I the only one that thinks it's going to be a tight squeeze to fit the entire ISAM Live setup on the stage there? The stage isn't that big and the ISAM setup is quite large if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the tips. The 2.0 set up is supposed to be bigger than the coachella set up, so without knowing the size of the stage, I'm gonna have to guess that it will pretty much be a tight squeeze for most of the places they have booked for the tour.

Agreed, it was a very enjoyable set. Atleast one song from the second half has from his earlier Two Finger release. But damn, I'm excited to listen to the limited release Album of his i picked up last night.

Crowd was terrible where i was standing. A couple tall "bros" came 10 minutes in and stood right in front of us, openly talking about how they didn't even know who was on stage.

The stage setup was definitely scaled down, but it didnt bother me too much. Overall, had a great time.

This was my first time there and thought it was a pretty cool venue. Looking forward to going back. But I did show up at 830 and there was already about 40 people in line.

Florence was incredible, that lady can sing, we bought tickets n the 300 section, but security was there handing out pit passes because "Florence wanted the pit to be full" so that was awesome we ended up right up front for the end of the weeknd and all of flo. Her stage presence and crowd interaction was cool. The Macabees sound like radio head and arcade fire had a baby.

I went last year, Sports Arena sucks, the sound is terrible. I had a decent time but there were way too many kids smoking cigarettes (inside) and not enough ventilation to get rid of the smoke so it made my girl and me sick. Also, it's going to be a huge brofest, but anything in SD is that way anymore.

On an unrelated note, got lucky and found a ticket for cheap for Two Door Cinema Club and had a great time! The opening band 'Friends' was fucking terrible but TWCC made up for it and was a fun dance party!

Me, my girlfriend and my roomate all had a BLAST at The Shouthouse downtown. If you want a relaxed New Years with live music instead of dancing or partying super hard it's definitely the way to go. Tickets are pricey but it includes a buffet and a reserved seat. They put on a ton of cool skits and shit during their special events like New Years.

Just saw Pinback at HOB this past weekend. Great show - best they've ever sounded. Always curious as to why they never get invited to do festivals, specifically Coachella since they're from San Diego, and they do have a rather steady fan base. Anyways, see you all for Weekend 2. First Coachella ever.

Their HOB set was also my favorite of theirs (I mean, Casbah's always pretty great, but I like how they've gotten more polished over the years). I've also wondered why Pinback's never done festivals, since they've been long respected by the indie music community.

Races start at 4 if I remember correctly, and the bands usually play at 7pm. I'm not 100 percent sure because me and my friends used to show up early and bet on horses and get drunk. We would always lose track of time, and went with the flow. Watching the races is actually fun.

I emailed Chris Bahr (Director of Events/Promotions for the Del Mar Race Track) and this was his reply:

Going to Souls of Mischief at the Belly Up tomorrow, then hitting up Steel Pulse on Friday at Del Mar Racetrack. What time do you think we need to show up at the racetrack to avoid paying $20? It just says before the start of the last race, but races start at 4pm.

1st race is at 4pm. 30 minutes between each race. Number of races a day varies, but you can do the math.
You can also track the races live: http://www.dmtc.com/frame.php?f=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.equibase.com%2Fstatic %2Fchart%2Fsummary%2FDMR-calendar.html

Thanks for the info. Eight races this Friday, so the last race should start before 7:30pm. I'll definitely be there in time to avoid the $20 price.

Serves them right, they got so damn full of themselves. I actually liked the spot quite a bit, but it became too much of a hassle to go there.

I thought LED and Voyeur were run by the same group of guys? From what I've seen it looks like it's closing, but who knows for sure. They've never really been great with the whole communication thing.

So I managed to get two Wrex the Halls GA tickets but I'm taking my friend who doesn't frequent these type of shows much. For anyone who has gone before what's the floor like? Is it a wristband type of thing with all the bathroom and food/drink amenities off the floor?

Wristband, food and bathroom on the upper level. Sometimes there are beer booths on the floor though.

Last year there was a bathroom (and a concession stand, I think) in the back corner of the floor, where the locker rooms are

Or park at a trolley station and ride the trolley to SDSU. I'd double check to make sure it's running late that night, though

This is incorrect. It's at sports arena, not SDSU.

Oh shit. My bad! I've been living in France for the past couple months, so I'm a bit out of the loop.:rolleyes

If that's the case, DO NOT park in the home depot parking lot. Some douche makes his living by towing people off that lot whenever there's an event

Parking at Target, or In N Out is a safer bet(In N Out is a walk though, worth saving the 20 bucks I'd say).

+1 on Kurtz st.
If you're driving south on the 5, take the Rosecrans exit (it will be a cluster), but after you exit make the first right turn (before the Denny's) and work your way toward the Sports Arena. I'll leave it to your GPS/phone to lead you the way (you'll be driving through an industrial area). Find street parking wherever you find it.

I usually take the 8 and exit Sports Arena blvd and park on West Point Loma Blvd. where there is tons of street parking and no traffic. But it's a .5 mile walk.

Wrex the Halls was a good show. I found myself wanting every band to have a longer set time though, especially Queens of the Stone Age.

Not as shiny as Almost Acoustic Christmas, but that just made it better. The set times as always were too short, but everyone put in a good show. Also, good crowd from Alt-J on.

Also, thanks for the parking advice. Fund a spot on Kurtz just outside the parking gate. After the show they announced 66 cars towed for Home Depot.

Wrex the Halls was awesome, Alt-J, Cage the Elephant, and Arctic Monkeys each played for 40 minutes(in Alt-J's case it was pretty much a full set, minus an encore). All three bands made great use of their time.

Alt-J especially was great, the only problem was plenty of people didn't know who they were it seemed like, but they really impressed me. The worst thing during Alt-J is people asking me and my friends to sit down. I'm sorry not going to happen we are at a concert and I'm standing and dancing. Alt-J make their sound work so well live. It seems more urgent, and even dancey. All of the guys are great musicians, their timing is perfect. It was my 4th time seeing alt-J and def the best set I've seen from them.

Arctic Monkeys are caught between their Post Punk angular rock, and this new swaggerific sound they've taken up for AM. It makes for a fun yet uneven set. The new songs are great, but they lack the energy and intensity in a live setting. I can't say much about Cage other than they played a ridiculously fun set last night.

Now to the highlight of the night, Vampire Weekend. This band is officially on the map, as if it needed to be said after the massive crowds at Coachella this year. No doubt they are doing arenas everywhere when they put out their 4th record. As a matter of fact they will headline Coachella with their next record. Their sound live is tight, and they are thriving on stage. They put on such a fun, and energetic set. My favorite set of the night.

What was depressing is what happened after, about 1/4 of the crowd left after Vampire Weekend finished their set, and QOTSA went on. QOTSA came out on fire, and what was extremely impressive about their 45-50 minute set was how great the new songs sounded. I would even say I enjoyed the new material much more live than the "hits" last night. Sucks that they played to a 2/3 empty arena 20-25 minutes into their set. They had until 11pm to play but I'm sure they said fuck this shit, we are leaving too you ungrateful San Diego bastards.
