I swear to god when I read other local event preview pages I can't believe what I'm reading sometimes. There truly, truly, truly is no accounting for individual taste. People like what they like. This Wednesday is another excellent example of the concept of the "El Cajon Bloc Party:" The Void and Soda Bar doing complementary shows. Last night was another good example with Dirty Beaches/Deap Valley. There were at least 20 people who bought tickets, walked off to Soda Bar and came back. Obviously you start at Soda Bar and head to Void for Blouse.
Blouse released an LP last week but no Pitchfork review, which is bizarre. Blouse has close to 20k fans on Facebook, which puts them in the 100-200 tickets sold range. Blouse has a solid but unspectacular 1.1 million plays and a solid 2-3k listeners a week. I think though, it's easy to make the argument that any "Captured Tracks" band is going to draw in San Diego. They typically do.

I've heard that Azar Swan is legit. We shall see.
