Spoon goes back to basics

Long-running indie rock group finds its soul

The “lonely” (Daniel’s word) process of self-producing Transference also led to the decision to work with two big name producers for its follow-up, They Want My Soul, which Spoon released last year through Loma Vista Recordings after putting out five albums on venerable indie label Merge Records.

Judge upholds eviction of Che Cafe

UCSD wins battle with DIY venue in court

The Che Cafe has suffered another setback after a long series of conflicts with UCSD over the music venue's ability to keep its space. A judge ruled today in favor of the university in a two-day trial determining whether the UCSD had the grounds to evict the Che Cafe Collective. UCSD originally served The Che with an eviction notice back in June, following a vote from the student-run University Centers Advisory Board to rescind funding for the venue’s much-needed repairs. The eviction was temporarily put on hold when The Che was granted a stay in court one month later. After UCSD’s victory in court, however, it would appear that The Che is running out of options. ...

San Diego Music Awards winners: The full list

The Burning of Rome take home three awards, Jason Mraz two

After two years of predictions and partying at the San Diego Music Awards, I've reached a solid conclusion: I'm absolutely terrible at predicting which artists will take home awards. Hell, I'm not even sure you can come up with a logical system of figuring it out. But while I went zero for five this year in my own reading of the music scene's entrails, I was pleasantly surprised to find that three of the artists I wanted to win—Nathan Hubbard, Odessa Kane and Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact—actually did! I'll call that a moral victory, if not an actual one.Meanwhile, perennial why-is-he-even-nominated favorite Jason Mraz won both Artist of the Year and Best Music Video, accepting his award via phone. The Burning of Rome, meanwhile, had the most wins at three: Best Live Band, Best Alternative Album and Song of the Year. Have a look at the full list of winners below. ...
