For me, my weekend revolves around Sunday. I’ll be taking the “Magic Bus” from Hamilton’s in South Park to Devore Stadium and the FM94.9 Independence Jam. It’s gonna be a hell of a time.
FM94.9 has been my go-to radio station ever since I moved out here. I’m pretty sure I landed on it my first night in town, on a drive to Target to buy some towels and whatever other crap you need to purchase when you roll into town with only a carload of belongings.
A few years ago, I was visiting an old friend in Philly and two other friends were talking about some radio show on NPR and they couldn’t believe I never listened to it. Joe, who drove across country with me on my move out here and then hung out for a few days, responded with, “In her defense, they have some kick-ass radio stations out in San Diego.” (I think this was shortly after Y100 went off the air in Philly and he was just a little bit jealous.)
And the little radio station that could put together a great lineup for Sunday’s show. Here it is:
Nortec Collective 12:40-1:10 (I hope the Magic Bus gets me there on time to see them!)
Ting Tings 2:20-2:50
The Whigs 3:20-3:55
Cold War Kids 5:30-6:15
The Hold Stead 6:45-8:00
Flogging Molly 8:30-9:45
Wrong Trousers 1:55-2:20
Blackout Party 2:50-3:20
Kill Me Tomorrow 3:55-4:25
The Muslims 5:00-5:30
Silent Comedy 6:15-6:45
I’ve got a photo pass, so I’ll be flitting back and forth between the two stages all day. If you see me, be sure to say hi!
