White Apple Tree are quickly making their mark on the San Diego music scene and beyond.
I never set out to be a blogger. I had a regular day job that perhaps had a bit too much redundancy and a lot of free time. To look busy, I would write about whatever came to mind, which usually involved shows I had seen and places I had been. I never actually thought anyone was reading until an awkward post got the attention of another blogger. From that day, I quit my online diary and created San Diego: Dialed In, a site mostly devoted to music in San Diego. The personal stuff still finds its way in, but even after four years, it is astonishing to me that this hobby has basically become my job. To celebrate four years, please join me tonight at the Casbah for three awesome local acts. d/wolves will kick off the night and show off their youthful talents, Swim Party will bring their always stellar performance and celebrate their EP release, and White Apple Tree will get booties shaking to close down the night.
