Sounds Like San Diego: April 9



    The beauty and the curse of the internet is that music is so accessible to everyone. Music can be recorded and shared without gatekeepers, but there's so much out there that filtering through it all, or hoping that your own music somehow floats to the top and reaches the right ears, is now harder than ever. Kina Grannis took matters into her own hands when she decided to make a video using over a quarter of a million Jelly Belly jelly beans and still photographs. Organizing the beans into pictures, she spent 22 months creating the video of "In Your Arms" that went viral over the web. The video caught the attention of the Today Show, Ellen, MTV and countless others, and it now has over six million views -- I guess that's one way to get noticed. Kina Grannis performs Monday night at Porter's Pub on the UCSD campus.
