In keeping with the San Diego theme, I want to introduce one of my favorite local bands. I first saw The Fascination in The Casbah, San Diego’s own version of CBGB. The venue was perfect: dark, divey, good liquor, and the band….they blasted great fun music. It was a shame not more people were dancing.
They even joke about the fact on their Myspace:
The Fascination is a three-piece comprised of a British immigrant, a native San Diegan, and a southern boy from South Carolina. They live in San Diego where they play music for hipsters who pretend to not like them… that’s how it works there.
Oh, yeah. Did I mention the lead singer was a Brit? I think I’m in love.
The audio is horrible on this youtube video, go to their myspace to really get a good sense of this band:
