Wednesday, August 8th at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach was jamming with local San Diego sounds from Boom Snap, Oceanside Sound System and Hazmatt. Between sets Clint Westwood from the Whiskey Avengers kept the vibes and dance floor alive as DJ. Letting the music inspire him, Al Scholl was on hand producing live art that set the stage for a fun-filled night of blended artistic and musical talent.
The night kicked off with Boom Snap and this high-energy, 3 piece band from Pacific Beach stole the stage. They brought a funkadelic sound reminescent of a Chili Peppers style groove that got everyone off their seats to dance.
The middle act featured an unusual combination of Ska, Punk Rock, and Reggae that meshed seamlessly for a unique sound straight out of O’ side. Oceanside Sound System lit the house up with lead singer Skillet and his 8 piece band who merged from other North County bands Irieside and Wanted Dead. O.S.S. delivered a ton of rambunctious fun as people were mashing it up on the floor, spilling drinks and getting down to the eclectic sounds.
The end of the night sealed the deal as Hazmatt took the stage to promote their latest CD. An electrifying performance. Thanks once again to On Point Promotions
