People don’t read blogs for shit on the 4th of July. Something about “outdoors,” “life,” and “having a good time.” Hope to see you all back here tomorrow.
Until then, I hope all of you who are at Grand Ole Party/Scarlet Symphony have a high old time tonight. I ran into a buddy of mine outside who did a little bit of research on Grand Ole Party (who’ve received plenty of local press) and found that no one (there may be a few exceptions) outside of Southern California (be real–San Diego) is writing about them. That’ll probably change in the next few months, in the run-up to their record release and their label’s securing a high-profile publicist (my guess? Big Hassle. Could be Girlie Action, I suppose). For the moment, I think it should give San Diego’s music hype industrial complex a little perspective on how little of what goes on here carries in other major media markets.
