Smashing Pumpkins headline 91X's Wrex The Halls holiday concert at SDSU's Viejas Arena.
With recent ownership and management changes at 91X, the station has definitely upped the game in San Diego and is working to regain listeners who switched the dial over the years by rehiring former talent and making significant tweaks in their programming. Proving their worth tonight with their Wrex the Halls concert at SDSU, they've got legacy bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Eat World and Bad Religion, who will be joined by newer bands like A Day to Remember and Anberlin, as well as one of San Diego's most successful bands, Switchfoot. t's a solid lineup that should please audiences of all ages.
