Here are some photos I snapped on the third night of the Villaintines 2015 tour at The Other Door in North Hollywood. It was my first time at the venue, and I was really impressed considering it’s unassuming exterior. The sound guy turned out to be the owner of The Other Room. He was a nice guy who seemed to really care about making sure the bands sounded as good as possible. I missed Ricky Small’s set, but I thought Tiny Stills, Mariel, and Sullen Ray sounded great. -Mark

Coming up in a little under a month on Saturday, December 13, 2014, Handmade Holiday is a fundraiser held in the courtyard of the new San Diego Central Library (330 Park Boulevard) between 9:30am-4pm. They’ll be featuring over 30 local artists, designers, and vendors “to get a jumpstart on the holiday shopping.”
But why are we talking about it? Because of the afternoon entertainment!
Starting at noon, four local musicians — hand-picked by Villains friend Roy Silverstein of North Park’s Rarefied Recording — will hit the auditorium stage.
The four artists are lounge singer and pianist Normandie Wilson, banjo-and-ukulele shoegrass band Kalashnikov My Wife, indie rockers The Gift Machine, and solo artist Erik Canzona of The Heavy Guilt.
Below, you can read a little about Roy’s thought process in choosing these musicians and his thoughts on the music and art communities.
(And if you want to read more about the musicians, I’ll be posting interviews from each on the Handmade Holiday blog in the coming weeks.)

Beta Lion‘s first show since they released their Written in Sand, Mariel‘s first show since before the summer, and The Voveri‘s first show EVER? It was a series of firsts at the Tin Can last Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014.
To those of you who showed up, THANK YOU!! Not only did you help us hit capacity, you brought so much energy and excitement into the room!
