Lightning In A Bottle 2016-2018
Want to get away? Spend some time outdoors with friends and artist alike. This is the place to be. From the intricate customs built art stages to the individuals on the ground dancing or coordinating this is a very well rounded festival. With The DoLab there is plenty of activities, structures to gaze on, and inspiration then any other festival I have been to. It feels a lot like family hanging around these grounds. It is here you will find people are welcoming, polite, and strange all together as one. This place will never disappoint those who have open minds.
Back to Baja, for another great Mexican adventure. This year we took on the elements of Earth. With some crazy waves to start the weekend we saw on crystal clear nights filled with millions of stars, crazy winds blowing down the homesteads, intense fog so thick you could hardly see, and crazy tides keeping everyone on their dancing toes. However none of this halted the crew from keeping a great time up and running for all to enjoy. Thank you Genius Loci 2017.

Life is Beautiful 2017
Old Vegas and Fremont St. bring on a wild festival full of neon lights, spectacular art, and massive musical line-up. This was the first year I attended any Vegas festival and it sure won't be the last. Everyday from start to finish gets filled with things to eat, explore, and find. If you haven't had a chance to check this one out I highly suggest looking into the future music line-ups. If that gets you fired up to send it on over to Sin City you sure won't leave disappointed.

5 Points Gathering
The 5 Points Gathering hosted by MT. Baldy brings together a smaller group of talented artist, musicians, and attendees to the Top Notch Bar and Grill. Creating a much more sentimental vibe throughout the whole weekend. Small stages bring people in close with the music and the good times go all night. The mountain offers great food, beers, hikes, activities, sight seeing, and camping the entire year. Events like this can be curated by anyone, making MT. Baldy one of my favorite places to meet and attend festivals while they are still young. 5 Points Gathering.
Always playing that same song a different way. This collective of raw talented musicians switches around what you thought you might have heard at their last show just because they can. With some mean horn players and a verity of vocalist they put together some outstanding sounds. Soul fills the air as vibrations leave their instruments making them one of my favorites to jam to live or in the boombox. Check out Boostive.
Most definitely one of my favorite San Diego Local artist because when your at a Vokab Kompany show your are in Good Kompany. With a Full band including guitar, bass, drums, sax, and synth they bring hip-hop, funk, dance, electronic shows to the next level. Yeah they bring all of that and more. Been stoked to see them at Lightning in a Bottle a few times as well as here locally. They never disappoint and know how to keep the dance floor singing and moving those feet. Check out Vokab Kompany.
This group of energy put together by talent and soul will be sure to bring the funk back into your dance step. Big smiles fill the stage as you can tell this band of funky animals is here for a good time not a long time. They give you everything from start to finish and the audience is always giving right back. Im a huge supporter of local music and these guys represent San Diego to me very well. Check them out The Routine.
The Verigolds are made up of individuals that see and hear the world in a very unique way. Their psychedelic indie rock gives you sound that is fun and catchy to groove to. While keeping the folk vibe alive this group is sure to impress you with some new sounds. Deep timeless jams for any time of day or place in this world. Check out the The Verigolds.
Dance. Electronic. Rock. Bang Pow. Love this guys on and off the stage. True to good music and hard work they put it all into their performance on stage. Filled with lights, lasers, and fog they turn the place into a dance party every time. Masters behind each of their own instruments these guys will for sure have a song or two you will be adding to your new library. Check out Bang Pow.
