IAmDynamite: A Trolley Show

Michigan duo performs 'Where Will We Go' aboard the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of the A Trolley Show, the Michigan duo perform a driving rendition of “Where Will We Go.” With just a guitar and an egg shaker, these two make the tune sound like a machine gun, and singer Christopher Martin’s off-camera stare is just as unnerving.

X Ambassadors: A Trolley Show

New York brooders perform 'Litost' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
We first heard of X Ambassadors when their music showed up in the movie adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s The Host, which makes sense: it’s the perfect accompaniment to the glowering

Blood Red Shoes: A Trolley Show

English duo performs 'Lost Kids' on the MTS

Crystal Fighters: A Trolley Show

Spanish band performs 'LA Calling' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
Ever wondered what a band would sound like if it mixed the tropic-tinged sound of Vampire Weekend (sans the grooming) with the communal, group-love characteristics of bands like Edward Sharpe or The Polyphonic Spree? Crystal Fighters would likely be the answer.

The Stone Foxes: A Trolley Show

Blues band performs 'Cotto' in Solana Beach

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of A Trolley Show, we take a detour in Solana Beach where, unfortunately, the trolley doesn’t go. But that doesn’t stop the boys from The Stone Foxes from performing a lively version of their song “Cotto” before their show at The Belly Up.

The Heavy Guilt: A Trolley Show

Expansive band brings all their toys on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
If ever there were a McGyver of music, The Heavy Guilt’s Al Howard would be it. Give the guy a box of Rice-A-Roni, a saw blade and some chains and you’ll probably get a song out of it.

Matt Costa: A Trolley Show

Folk rocker performs psychedelic 'Walls Like Windows' aboard the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

June is never an easy month in San Diego. That weird gloom sets in, and the usually laid-back demeanor of the city becomes downright dour. So, what’s the solution to the June funk? Drive out to the hot desert and get weird, of course, and that’s where Matt Costa comes in.
