Calpurnia Performing Live at the House of Blues!

Calpurnia is a 4-piece from Vancouver led by Finn Wolfhard - best known for his roles in the Netflix series Stranger Things and 2017’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s It. The band - which in addition to Wolfhard includes lead guitarist Ayla Tesler-Mabe, bassist Jack Anderson and drummer Malcolm Craig. Through a chance meeting on the set of a music video shoot, Finn and drummer Malcolm Craig hit it off immediately. Ayla and Jack followed suitably after and Calpurnia was formed.


They released their debut EP Scout through Royal Mountain Records last year. Scout is everything you'd want it to be, 6 infectious guitar driven tracks, influenced by everyone from Mac DeMarco to the Rolling Stones. After the release of their debut single "City Boy" last March, Calpurnia have been making waves, with the song being streamed more than 2 million times and hitting #1 on the Global Viral 50 Spotify chart. Calpurnia went on to release their second single "Louie" which is clocking over 265,000 streams and is still climbing.

Cozz Is Coming to San Diego!

Despite being on the Win or Lose Tour, it’s always a win-win when Cozz is performing! The Los Angeles rapper will be opening up for Dom Kennedy at Soma on December 7th.

Creating a fresh blend of cerebral introspection and brash attitude, it's no wonder that J. Cole tapped Cozz to be the L.A. representative on his Dreamville label. Cozz's prominent spot on the "Win Or Lose Tour," which also features support from Jay 305 and Warm Brew, closes out an eventful 2018 for Cozz, who released Effected (Dreamville/Interscope Records) this past February. The album featured A-list collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and Curren$y and allowed the rapper to headline "The Effected Tour" this past Spring.

Don’t miss your chance to see Dom Kennedy and Cozz perform at Soma on December 7th! Tickets are still available at one of San Diego’s best venues!

Quiet Slang Comes to the Soda Bar on June 29th!

Beach Slang is coming to San Diego on June 29th. However the band will be arriving under a new name, Quiet Slang. 

Quiet Slang is lead singer James Alex’s new project. For fans who want to know the difference between Quiet Slang and Beach Slang, listen to “Dirty Cigarettes” below and compare it to Beach Slang’s Cheap Thrills on a Dead End Street EP. It's the same song but the new version  on Quiet Slang’s new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening really shows the contrast of the songs. The songs sound similar but the new acoustic version really puts an emphasis on the lyrics and showcases them. It's always refreshing to hear a new take on a song and have it sound just as good or maybe even better than the original.

Apparently, the idea of Quiet Slang came after a performance of Beach Slang songs when they came on for NPR’s Tiny Desk series. The positive reception from the acoustic performance James Alex put on for Tiny Desk led him to release the first release under the Quiet Slang name with an EP in 2017. Beach Slang was more listening to the great instrumentation of the songs and Quiet Slang is more on an introspective take where the lyrics are what shines more. 

Everything Matters But No One Is Listening is an album loaded with stripped-down versions of previous Beach Slang songs. Although the album is solid, fans were worried this might spell the demise of Beach Slang. Despite many changes to Beach Slang's lineup, James reassured fans that the band has not broken up. Quiet Slang is more of a sibling to the Beach Slang family. 

The title of the album itself, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, is a a change of pace for listeners of Beach Slang. These more barren and acoustic songs put a spotlight on the original and shed new light on them. Fans new and old should be excited to see this reinvention. If you're interested in more of an intimate set with a drink in hand, this show will be one for you.
