This was my second year shooting (unofficially) The San Diego Music Thing that is our own small-scale version of Austin, TX's South By Southwest, which I also attended this year. Given the expense of the wristbands that let you bounce around different venues and showcases, I opted to hang the entire night at U-31 in North Park and I'm glad I did.
I showed up to support one of my favorite local band The Beautiful View, but I also was fortunate to check out Los Angeles's Queen Caveat. I showed up right as they were starting and was so mesmerized by the performance, that half-way through the set I looked down to my pint of Guinness and realized that my camera was still in my bag and I wasn't taking photos... it was a truly dynamic and polished spectacle. Then as per usual, The Beautiful View powered through and delivered an especially tight and sonic set. Please enjoy!
