Since their formation in 2015, San Diego band Imagery Machine has set the local music scene on fire. Their distinct style of female-fronted indie rock psychedelia with undertones of reggae and progressive rock create an intoxicating, dynamic sound. Described as sounding similar to The Cranberries, Florence + The Machine and The Police, this troupe is fronted by the sultry voice of Jennie Dreams, with a band featuring accomplished musicians James Howard on lead guitar, bassist/vocalist Will Parsons, and drummer Tyler Shimkus. Imagery Machine was recently nominated for Best Indie/Alternative Band at the 2019 San Diego Music Awards, and the band has garnished two more nominations for their self-titled EP and Skydriver EP in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The band’s musical energy and passion shines through their immersive live performances, which feature kaleidoscopic lighting, frenzied stage presences, and an imaginative use of glitter and face paint. Imagery Machine has captivated a wide range of audiences; from street fairs, farmers markets and beer festivals along the coast of California to San Diego mainstay rock clubs such as The Casbah, Belly Up and Soda Bar. The band also played their first international shows in 2018 with more planned for the near future. This group of musical trailblazers is showing no sign of stopping, with big plans to release more much more content in 2019.
The Gooch Palms
All right stop, collaborate and listen... Gooch Palms are back with a brand new invention. Something grabs a hold of them tightly, flow like two harpoons daily and nightly. Will it ever stop? Yo, they don't know. Turn off the lights and they'll glow. To the extreme they rock the mics like two vandals and light up the stage and wax a chump like two candles.
After a big couple of years touring the globe for their second album Introverted Extroverts, The Goochies are back in the saddle riding with some fresh hot tunas! 2018 has seen their triumphant return with smash hit single Busy Bleeding, a raucous ode to how tough the ladies of the world are, surfing the crimson wave monthly while still getting the job done! With follow-up jammer Marfa Lights offering up a laid-back, drum machine driven tale of alien encounters in the West Texas desert. And now, the feel good hit of the summer, the aptly named Summertime which will take you all the way back to the white sand beaches of the South of France circa 1968.
2019 is shaping up to be one of the gruesome twosome's biggest years yet. With album number three in the wings and world tours galore... if there was a problem, yo, they'll solve it, check out the hook while The Goochies revolve it!
Electronic music made for humans, by humans. Incorporating elements of Alternative Rock, EDM, and hip hop, and utilizing both acoustic and electronic instruments, Future Human has crafted a live set that is not to be missed.
In early June of 2018, they recorded six tracks, to be released as singles over the next few months.
There's a fresh sound emanating from San Diego--it's brought to you by The Anodynes and they call it "groovy rock 'n' soul." Their unique blend of styles reflects the diversity in the band's background, with members from around the country including vocalist Queen Be (TX,) drummer Drew Butcher (OH,) guitarist Vince Gabuzzi (AZ,) and bassist James Howard (CA.) Together, they actively channel their creativity and positivity through music that speaks to a universal audience. The group released their self-produced debut EP (The Anodynes) in 2016 to showcase their musical flexibility, then recently mixed it up with a more live, focused sound on their second EP (Catching Waves) in 2018. Fans agree that the band is at their best when they take the stage, where they deliver a high-energy show charged by uplifting vibes. As their name suggests, The Anodynes make music that lives to heal the soul, take you on a journey and raise a few goose bumps. Find out for yourself!
