September 18: MC Chris

MC Chris is quite possibly the tiniest emcee to ever live (aside from The Geto Boys’ Bushwick Bill who is actually a “little person”). It suits the diminutive rapper’s schtick. His lyrics are littered with humor and cover everything from Star Wars characters to G.I. Joe. With his knack for comedic delivery, MC Chris earned a loyal following in “nerdcore” hip-hop circles and as a regular writer/voice actor for The...

September 16 Stone Temple Pilots

Considering what lead singer Scott Weiland has been through over the years, it’s a feat in itself that Stone Temple Pilots still exists.  The San Diego natives earned prominence in the 90s with their harder take on “alternative rock.” While criticized for biting the “grunge” sound, they were among the most successful rock bands of all time, selling over 40 million records worldwide. Weiland became the sole focus...

Local Designer Spotlight: SnapSac


Let’s face it, many reusable bags aren’t stylish. In fact, most are fairly hideous. The trunk of my car is filled with royal blue, grocery store-branded bags that could never be used for any purpose other than transporting groceries. 


Enter local designer Lisa Vitale, the face behind Brand Hero Creative and Lisa Foster, Owner of reusable bag company 1 Bag at a Time.  “In...

September 8; Pepper

When lead singer Brad Nowell of Sublime passed away in 1996, he probably hadn't had the chance to appreciate the impact he had on so many people. The band Pepper clearly took Sublime’s influence and ran with it. The two are often compared because of their shared musical style involving reggae, dub and rock. Pepper formed in Hawaii around 1996 when guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman met bassist Bollinger in middle...

September 10; Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band

When you think of Vans Warped Tour, bands such as Bad Religion or NOFX probably come to mind - not a band that specializes in playing the washboard, five-gallon bucket or bottleneck slide. Meet Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, a little bit of an anomaly in itself. The Southern Indiana-based trio produce soulful, country blues with topics ranging from the disappearance of the American family farm to crystal meth...
