This year marks the debut of Ye Scallywag!, a day-long music, craft beer, wine and food festival in San Diego, CA.
There is absolutely no reason for you to have a boring, dreary weekend when you’ve got the San Diego Music Thing bringing more bands than I can count on more stages even imagined. The fact that it’s also happening on Friday the 13th is kind of amazing, especially when you’ve got bands like these playing…
FIDLAR, The Widows, Sculpin, The Frights at Queen Bee’s – Friday September 13th
FIDLAR is quickly becoming my new favorite thing. With music that is energetic and driving, guitar riffs riddled with shreds, and lyrics that chant out anthems of unrest and disorder, FIDLAR is definitely bringing the punk rock party to San Diego. They’re in the middle of a massive tour now, and they were recently featured on MTV’s Buzzworthy, so if you miss this performance you might have to kick yourself for it. Bonus points: Their FB page’s about section reads “FUCK IT DOG LIFE’S A RISK”.
The Widows is one of those bands where every single member is a badass music lover, and it shows in their music and live performances. They consistently churn out song after song of ska/punk fusion guaranteed to get your feet moving, so if you like a little party to go along with your rock, then you’re in the right place.
Warming up the crowd are punk rock acts Sculpin and The Frights, both bands that I promise will elevate your heart rate in the best way possible. Sculpin is solidly punk, with driving drum beats and searing, growling vocals; and The Frights bring on retro vibes with their surf rock approach.
