This Weekend’s Shows Recap

This weekend I found myself once again at local shows and hanging out with some super chill people! Here’s a quick recap of the local shows I went to with pictures! (for all the lazy people)


1. Trailview (Martinez,CA) started things off this weekend at the grand opening of C.R.E.A.M with an awesome two hour acoustic set featuring originals off their latest E.P. “All Things Grow” which you can download for free right now over at their Bandcamp page!



2. After Trailview’s set, Safety Hazard (Concord, CA) also played an acoustic set at C.R.E.A.M. If you’ve never heard of Safety Hazard check out their music Here! I personally recommend “Loser Blues” & “Beverly Drive”  🙂


There’s a reason I love local band shows and especially house shows. They’re always a great time! My Own Confusion (Dublin, CA) hosted a rad house show (yes, even though it was Sunday) Full of good music and chill people.

3. The Truth Is (Hayward, CA) did an awesome acoustic set w/tambourine playing originals such as “Dear, New Girl” and “O.S.D. (All That I Say Is True)” and then did some awesome New Found Glory/All Time Low/Fall Out Boy covers for all the pop punk lovers!  Check out their music Here!

4. Lastly Don’t Be The Hero (Oakland, CA) gave us all a huge dose of Pop Punk playing their energetic originals ” The Anthem”, “Summer” & “The Chase” and finished things off with their “I Miss You” cover! Check out their latest single “The Anthem

(Sidenote: Their usual bassist Clare was unable to make this show, So their guitarist Troy took over for the day)

That’s it for this week! If you have the chance, go discover some new music!
