It’s a little hard to be believe that the blackout that crippled San Diego occurred nearly three years ago. It doesn’t seem that long ago that the darkness forced us away from our screens, out of our homes and into the company of strangers. And without trying to be too literal, Blackout Party has the similar ability to forge that exciting communal experience.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, the San Diego band performs “Cold Bitch’s Heart,” which, despite the title, is an uplifting alt-country tune. The brushed snare and slide guitar give the song an outlaw quality—an anthem of forgetting your troubles and throwing caution to the wind. If that doesn’t stir up some feelings of camaraderie, we don’t know what will.
