San Diego’s musical community has been on the rise ever since the Gaslamp Killer jumped into national consciousness with his work on Brainfeeder. Today, a host of new promotion companies and DJs are making the most of the beach metropolis’ sunny weather, and CRSSD are a prime example. A two-day festival featuring both live and dj groups, the event boasts one of the best lineups of any young festival. Top picks include Hot Natured, Jamie Jones, Justin Martin, Simian Mobile Disco, and Thomas Jack. It should be quite the weekend, and two-day passes go on sale for just $85.
Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 introduced me to the world of electronic music, and ever since, it’s been a huge part of my life. I’m currently a philosophy student at UCSB, but music and shows are my passion. Thanks to EJ, I hope to share the magic of music with anyone interested.
