Get ready to sweat out those hot August nights when our FREE SoundDiego LIVE Platinum party takes over Bar Pink on Aug. 29!
We've tapped both Barbarian and Buddy Banter to get the North Park crowd amped into a frenzy (RSVP to the party now), but they won't be the only bands sweating out the good times and letting it all loose throughout the night: They'll be followed by the victor of this month's Garage 2 Glory competition!
That's right, in addition to two killer headliners, a Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey hosted happy hour and 91x's Robin Roth as the perfect party host -- our regulars know no SoundDiego LIVE event is complete without our beloved contest where we pit two local bands against each other in an online musical death match. SoundDiego fans vote for their favorite, and the winning act plays at SoundDiego LIVE. This month, the battling bands are Electric Healing Sound and Grizzly Business -- and both are guaranteed to keep the party rockin'.
"Electric Healing Sound is a minimalist garage rock band from San Diego but based in TJ," 91x DJ Robin Roth tells us. "They've been together for about 4 years and influences include everything from '60s garage rock to '80s indie. It sounds like they take equal inspiration from the Velvet Underground and the Jesus and Mary Chain. They'll be going up against Grizzly Business, a band formed in Santee last year. They've been compared to the Strokes, the Shins and Spoon and have played as many shows as possible over the past year. We'll see if that helps them land the Garage To Glory spot at the next SoundDiego LIVE. Both bands have been working hard on their respective debut full-length albums -- so they're sure to be in peak form."
Two contestants enter but only one shall emerge victorious. To vote for this month's Garage 2 Glory band, click here. The winner will be decided Aug. 27 at noon, and you can vote once a day until the contest ends.
We'll be thrilled to have either band on the bill, but no matter who ends up playing, you don't want to miss the Aug. 29 SoundDiego LIVE Platinum summer smackdown at Bar Pink! Make sure you RSVP for the party here.
