Doh! So, I was gearing up for my 10 year anniversary of promoting music in San Diego, even spiffed up the website a little in preparation for the big celebration in 2012. It wasn't until I was searching around my computer for old show flyers that I realized I was a year off. I didn't start hosting open mics until 2003, my first big show happening shortly thereafter at The Coaster Saloon featuring Tubby, The Big Provider, 3 Against 1, Earl Thomas, Candye Kane, Deadline Friday, Steph Johnson, Ten Pound Brown (Transfer), Los Flying Plutos (members of The Beat Farmers) and other awesome acts, see poster. Still gives me goosebumps just thinking about alla that talent... sheesh. Anyway, thanks to EVERY band who's EVER played one of my shows and to all the folks who come out and enjoy them. ListenLocalsd.com loves you. This is gonna be an incredible year for San Diego music... can't you hear it?
A message from The Touchies: SAN DIEGO PUNK ROCK-N-ROLL BAND, THE TOUCHIES ARE OFFICIALLY LOOKING FOR A NEW DRUMMER!!! List of "requirements" to be the touchies new drummer. We r not a bunch of snobs. I don't care if ur a dude or a chick, old or young, etc. It's easy really:
1. don't mind ruffin it on tour (we r not a bunch of spoiled rich kids)
2. don't be a flake or a drag...u can be IN drag though. :)
3. most importantly: Love playing touchies music. Basically if u love/can keep up with the Ramones, u will love/ keep up with us.
Last year was a great year for the touchies. We went on a nine stop west coast tour, we got nominated for a San Diego Music Award (thanx again everyone for that), and released a double album. After our last show at the Casbah a few months ago, we decided to take a long break. Now 2012 is around the corner and the touchies have big plans. We've played pretty much every venue in San Diego 100 times, so we've decided in 2012 to focus more on shows outta town, and more quality shows in San Diego. We just got a tour van so we plan to book some shows in Vegas/ LA/ Phoenix, maybe another tour, or maybe even shows in NYC/Canada/ or even the UK and Europe. If ur interested in trying out from us an email on facebook (www.facebook.com/thetouchies) or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's a video of us playin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmHZmfUn9Rk&feature=youtu.be
Good luck, Touchies! Happy New Year Everyone! xoxo Cathryn
