the day I turned 15 – notes on feeling out of place, twirling under streetlamps and waitresses with pink hair.
Josh Savage is a prime example that determination and courage go a long way when pursuing a dream. Supported only by a love for his craft, the singer/songwriter tours the world, recruiting supporters one living room at a time. You see, this 26 year old tours on request, booking private shows in people’s homes and performing for intimate crowds. This, according to the singer, “allows artists to find their feet and to get an idea of how the industry works before being influenced by someone that’s already in the industry. You can actually be yourself.” (sofarsounds.com) So, in honor of his new single, ‘Ghosts’, coming out a while back — we asked him a few questions.
Taylor Grey is already making a name for herself following the release of her debut album, “Space Case.” The album is a much needed injection of life into an otherwise dreary summer for music.
The EP, “Gossamer,” by Fashion Jackson, (known as the brilliant four member band from Ocean Beach) has a unique mix of tracks that vary from electronic, R&B, and garage punk, to acoustic/indie rock. Each track is different to the other, all while creating this genius fluidity to the release when listening from start to finish.

For an album called “STOP The Space Age,“ these songs couldn’t seem to take you further out of the atmosphere. Each one carries a specific & futuristic angle that pushes the audience to stay attentive to every second of swirling vocals and electrifying guitar riffs. The boys of Buddha Trixie seem to have outdone themselves with this one.
Written by Emily Brower, Photos by Kyla Rain Does it ever hit you that everyone has their own thoughts, their own inner monologue, their own opinions they think inside their head but never say out loud? Everyone has their own experiences and feelings that no other person can even begin to understand, and no matter how hard you try to explain your inner monologue, you could never do it justice. When I fall in love with a band or a song I become completely infatuated and attached to these people that don’t even know I exist. I have all these thoughts about them racing through my mind and if someone were to ask me what I was thinking about, no arrangement of words would equate the thoughts in my mind. It’s crazy to me that people can just listen to a song or see a band in concert but not form some sort of emotional attachment to them.

Get ready, because you’re going to see a lot more photo galleries from various shows all through the summer. Two weeks ago we covered concert at Soma San Diego, packed full of some of your favorite local artists: Buddha Trixie, Opt Out, Alex Lievanos, Shotgun Leslie, and SD’s latest and greatest addition, Sitting On Stacy. Here are some of the highlights of the night, captured by our favorite photographer, Annika Cimas. (We’re going to be working with Soma a lot more coming up, doing giveaways, posting photo galleries, and setting up camp at the merch tables to sell shirts and patches! Keep an eye out!)
Almost Monday was first created by Dawson Daughtery and Luke Fabry, and we soon learned how long and how many drummers it took to create this indie rock-surf fusion of a band. Gaining Cole Clisby and Michael Leto for now just over a year, they talk about how this group came to be, archaeology, an EP, and their shared love of performing live on stage. Sitting in the green room with these boys, we listened, talked, and definitely laughed a lot, so let’s dive in.
