Blathering on

This is where you will find posts about San Diego metal, punk rock and cannabis related events, organizations and venues. Also, posts about bands from other genres or locations and events that should be part of the San Diego scene. In short, random shit that has caught the eye of this blathering freak.

Golden Plates

This is a San Diego based artist whose creations are dripping sweetly into my ear canal and tripping around my brain giving the best cerebral massage. Honey, this a gorgeous parade of notes and images that's highly addicting. Who is this artist? Lets meet  Golden Plates and the multi talented juggler and artist who is Elder Brycen - a character with character! Bio from Facebook: "In 1823, Joseph Smith claimed to have discovered the word of God on some Golden [...]

Manifest Unity

A bit of blathering on.... Once in awhile I'll blather on in a post about whatever has been playing on my mind. Not everything that's been keeping me up because that would be ridiculous and I like to keep my demons private. I promise, the urge occurs only once in awhile and this post is one of those bits of blathering on The fireworks are booming in the distance and even during this Covid-19 pandemic, from the thunderous booms I [...]

Chiix

Going to the beach? This artist is perfect for enhancing your relaxing day at the beach or even ending your hike staring over a lush canyon. Wherever your special place is, you'll need this artist with you! Chiix delivers with beautifully done Atmospheric that's rich with a dreamy emotional quality that's rather lovely and relaxing. Some of you might not consider Atmospheric Rock as one of your preferred genres but keep an open mind.  I really loved Chiix's full voice [...]

Formula 400 creations are for those who adore substantial Stoner Rock that slaps heavy and melodic with tasty riffs, nice finger work  embracing excellent clear to gritty vocals with those beats that's going to carry you through your day. While I'm jamming to [...]

ALL Lives Matter! Just Not Black Lives??

I stood on one of the four corners with quite a few people but trying to keep a social distance. Most of my co-protesters are white, I'm one of the few brown people there.  I heard passing motorists scream at me, "Go back to your country!" We all heard the idiotic racists with their comeback to our Black Lives Matter signs with "All lives matter!" and " N*** Lover!". Along with signs that said, "Black Lives Matter" we also held [...]

Paleos

A Force.. Paleos is a metalcore force,  a fucking force bent on desecrating your senses with majestic vocals bellowing up embraced by tasty shredding that's going to tear you up one side and down the other. The drums? You're going to get crushed. You may not be able to handle what this Atalanta, Georgia band is delivering but we better hope they can come to San Diego soon.  Oh man, I can only imagine these guys in the same line [...]

Thread The Lariat

Ready for Something Wonderful? Beautifully crafted rock n roll with clearly fine tuned vocals, rocking beats, slight fuzzy riffs then melodic with truly lovely finger picking; Thread The Lariat is a prime example that alternative rock is alive and thriving.  When the moment calls for music that is wonderfully soul satisfying that's going to snag you with rock'n beats, one simply cannot go wrong by listening to Thread The Lariat. For your consideration, I have included a couple of their [...]

Brick by Brick – New York

Brick by Brick Is A Metal Band?? From Troy / Albany in New York, Brick by Brick is a metal band for those who like their metal straight up from hell with monstrous aggression fully equipped to melt your stupid face off! Awhile ago, Brick by Brick caught my eye because one of my favorite San Diego venues is, Brick by Brick. It seems a good fit that they would play at Brick by Brick but when they came out [...]

A Suffocating Lie

Amp You Up For The Pits! Suffocating Lie comes galloping toward you with unhinged aggression with the intent to shake you from the floor through your core then rip your insides up and out of your flaccid body. Photo by EQ Visuals I enjoyed my introduction to Suffocating Lie and I want to give a big shout out of appreciation to, Suffocating Lie's drummer, Topher Jones for reaching out to San Diego Blather via Instagram. Eventually, I would [...]

Jen Phipps

A Little Out Of The Ordinary... Jen Phipps has a rich and rather bluesy voice that has such a lovely depth and sincerity that rings out with each note she  hits so well. I really enjoyed her guitar mastery and would love to hear her do some metal! Maybe one day?  For now, Jen Phipps is a San Diego solo acoustic rock artist whose material reflects strength wrought from life's journeys. I think we can all understand that life is [...]
