Somewhere between Austin and San Diego we became friends with Mini Death. The garage pop band played a Sector gig, threw us some vinyl singles, and made us smile ever since. The sunny rockers have just released their latest EP, 'A Loner, A Rebel', and it's on repeat in the office. Tess Passaro sings above vintage garage pop melodies that sound old, new, and very catchy all at the same time. Listen to the entire EP then buy it here, and become their friends like we did.: http://minideathlovesyou.com/

Did you miss the first two or were you there but can’t remember? Maybe you have only heard the rumors. But the 3rd Sector 9 Rock Team night is upon us, and we are bringing in three San Diego up-and-comers: Blackout Party, Low Volts, and Creepxotica.
It will be at the Griffin on September 25th and you’re all invited to come meet some special Sector 9 guests and view live art from a mystery artist.
These nights only work if you’re there with us!

Cover songs can be great, think Hendrix doing Dylan’s "All Along the Watchtower" or the Chili Peppers doing Stevie Wonder’s "Higher Ground". Here’s locals, Little Hurricane, with a very well considered collection for you to hear... for free. What’s your favorite cover song?

Music is not a contest and award shows are usually tabloid exposès on how people dress. But if it’s the San Diego Music Awards and your friends are nominated, then awards are totally awesome. This year’s nominees are not only talented and well deserving, but they're full on bros and we want to see them win. So vote for Retox, Blackout Party, Creepy Creeps, and Okapi Sun. Now, what to wear…
Our friends Diarrhea Planet are a great band with a horrible name. The Nashville punks pulled an awesome sneak attack on the Casbah Saturday night and came on just as Nobunny had finished tearing the place apart. The boys nailed two shows in one night and were looking at a very late and long drive out of town. Instead they took a detour straight to Mission Beach to dip their toes in the ocean and crash on Rock Team Captain Rob Molt’s floor. See them on tour and invite them to crash at your place.
Our good friends and one of North County San Diego’s loudest indie rock bands, Kut-U-Up, is back with a new EP. 'Worse Than Wolves' is their first release in a few years and we couldn’t be happier. Make sure you pick this one up now, because you never know with these guys…..
