Ready to splash into summer, San Diego? We’re proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with Harrah’s Resort Southern California for the SoundDiego Summer Splash concert series.
If you’ve been to Harrah’s Resort Southern California, you know they’ve got all things water completely covered -- with a swim-up bar, a 400-foot lazy river, 21 cabanas, the main pool and eight hot tubs on site.
Food. Fun. Lifestyle. Features. All in America's Finest City.
And let’s just say that on every third Saturday of the upcoming summer months (May through August), the water’s going to be rockin’ when the SoundDiego Summer Splash concerts hit the resort.
Kicking off the festivities on Saturday, May 21, are the alt-rock radio mainstay the Boxer Rebellion, getting musical support from the Verigolds, a hometown psych-pop group that’s all the rage. Not only that, we’ll also have 91x’s beloved radio host (and local music guru) Tim Pyles emceeing the event. And he is pumped.
"Based in London, the Boxer Rebellion just dropped a new album, 'Ocean by Ocean,' their fifth in a 15-year career," Pyles said. "Big, yearning rock anthems from this band -- which actually features a dude from the states on lead vocals, singer Nathan Nicholson -- with orchestrated sounds that make you want to sing along."
It won't be the only summer sing-along happening, not if Pyles has anything to do with it (and he does). "Ever since I first discovered the Verigolds, I've been a fan -- and that was with only one recorded song," said the local-music lover. "The band has finally dropped its full-length album, and it's a magical trip of boho/indie/hippy/space rock that takes you on a trip to another world."
With tickets at $30, you get to see two incredible bands in one of California’s premier music venues with full access to their pool complex -- and in a summer setting that simply can’t be beat. Better yet, use the promo code SOUNDDIEGO when you’re purchasing your tickets here, and they’re only $20! Pretty rad, eh? The show starts at 7 p.m. on May 21 and includes all the summer fun you can handle. Also, pro tip: We're providing a FREE roundtrip party bus to and from Saturday's show at Harrah's Resort SoCal that will pick up showgoers at 6 p.m. in the parking lot of the Pacific Beach Staples (subject to capacity)! Be there!
