STEVE POLTZ 5TH ANNUAL 50TH BIRTHDAY BASH – SHOW REVIEW

STEVE POLTZ BIRTHDAY BASH

Ever since Australian native Dean Gifford caught a late night broadcast of a Steve Poltz concert back in 2005, he has traveled to the U.S. to celebrate the annual birthday bash. After learning more about Dean, I couldn’t help but ask if he would share his story and review of this year’s Belly Up show.

ART AND MUSIC COLLIDE AT THE BELLY UP

Live Art Battle

Over the years, I have heard of and seen my fair share of Battle of the Bands. But artists battling onstage while bands play? You certainly don’t see that very often. On Tuesday, January 14th at The Belly Up, On Point Promotions is promoting a Live Art Battle hosted by Carlos Culture where four artists will battle for 100 minutes during live musical performances by The Devastators, Brothers Gow, and The Tarr Steps.

LIVE AT THE BELLY UP SEASON TWO – BETTER THAN THE FIRST?

Live at the Belly Up Season Two

Last year, in conjunction with KPBS, Belly Up Tavern kicked off a music-centered program, a kind of “Austin City Limits meets Soul Train” filmed at the famed club in Solana Beach. The first year bookings of local acts Dead Feather Moon, Vokab Kompany, The Grass Heat, Brawley, The B-Side Players, and Bushwalla, to name a few, sparked not only the Friday night audience, but the Belly Up’s thirst for more.

DICKIES VIDEO LOG EXAMINES THE ROUGH AND TUMBLE BLACKOUT PARTY

BLACKOUTPARTY_JOELSON

It’s really starting to look like Blackout Party is built to last. With 2011 and 2012 San Diego music awards on their mantle, a nominee for “Best Rock” and a performance slot at this year’s awards show, plus two albums under their belt with another being recorded by year’s end, it makes sense that people are starting to notice. So much so that acclaimed music mag Filter and clothing line Dickies built a three-part series entitled “Building the Band” around what makes the band tick.

SHAKE BEFORE US – SHOW REVIEW

Shake Before Us

August 15th at Carlsbad’s Boar Cross’n, Shake Before Us cooked up a livid set of measured chaos. They have a fine knack, whether on purpose or not, of tilting on the edge of derailment. They seem to get some guilty pleasure from taking their songs to the edge, finding a shaky balance, and then returning to safer, steady ground for their landing.

LEXINGTON FIELD LIVE SHOW REVIEW

Lexington Field

Don’t let the fiddle fool you–this band gets loud. Even though Lexington Field drew the shortest straw as openers of the three-act show at The Belly Up on February 7th, the five-piece American fiddle rock band’s bold enthusiasm came across like they were headlining. Full of confidence and brash delivery, they tore through their set stomping out good-time, glass-in-the-air tunes.
