GoIndeepMusic will be out at The Observatory in San Diego tonight for an evening of friends, food, fun, and alternative rock.
Remember when it was cool to say you were into alternative rock?
Silversun Pickups are one of those type of bands that’s too alt for the radio station I listen to, so I don’t keep up with them as much as I used to. I am however on their mailing list, so I do occasionally receive electronic mail from the band updating me on what they’re up to. I’ve been on the list since I saw them at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach way back in 2006.
Tonight will be my fourth Pickups show overall, and then I’ll catch them a fifth time Saturday night at the Coachella Music Festival. The quartet will be making their third Coachella appearance in 2016, following stops at Empire Polo Grounds in 2009 and 2007.
I purposely left them off my Top 40 Must-See Coachella 2016 Bands, knowing I was going to this show tonight. If I wasn’t going to the show tonight, they would’ve been around my #40 must-see band.
The Los Angeles-based rockers have four studio albums to their credit. The most recent effort, Better Nature, came out last September.
Down below are a few vids from the show. Both tunes are off the new album.
The Pickups are always fun!
