Josh Damigo gets robbed

This week's music news for locals only includes Damigo's stolen goods, the Mraz/Prettyman engagement and more

By Peter Holslin
Singer-songwriter Josh Damigo hasn’t had a very happy Christmas season. In early December, thieves broke into his University Heights apartment and stole his laptop and iPod. Then, days before Christmas, someone broke his door down, ransacked his house, smashed his porch light and stole a jar full of pocket change marked “Josh’s 401k,” along with food from his fridge. “I had songs that I had recorded in my house on there, photos from past shows, and I won’t be able to get most of it back,” Damigo says via e- mail about his pilfered laptop. “It’s really hard because I’m unemployed, and don’t have much money. I’m doing the only thing I can do, and that’s to ‘think positively’—and pray that God (or karma) pays them back royally.”

These are the latest in a series of robberies in the area. There have been a handful of break-ins at The Fellowship of San Diego, the church adjacent to Damigo’s apartment, and thieves recently stole equipment from the church’s all-ages venue, The Park Gallery. “All of the break-ins were by force, and the cops called it a ‘smash and grab,’” Damigo says. “It’s unfortunate that they haven’t been able to find the person who’s doing it yet. (I think they’re all related.)”

On the other hand, singer-songwriters Jason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman had a wonderful Christmas. The Grammy winner and his girlfriend / collaborator went on Twitter last week to announce that they’re getting married. “SHE SAID YES,” Mraz tweeted. “For Once. I Am Speechless.....” Prettyman then tweeted, adding: “i did good! holy crap! man of my dreams!!! for the rest of my life!!!”

Thrash-metal band Nihilist will perform at the “Thrash Bash,” a Friday, Dec. 31, party and benefit for the Washington Street Skatepark Association, a nonprofit that raises money to maintain and insure the skate park at Washington Street and Pacific Highway. Eukarist will also play and Old Man Andy and Sam Hitz will DJ.
