It’s really nice to hype a local band not just because you have civic pride but because you actually mean it. And that’s the case with me and The Soft Pack, formerly The Muslims. I enjoy their simple, garagey tunes that just make me want to rock out so I’m happy to see the guys are getting recognition with a European tour and a gig on Letterman. They deserve it after playing a ridiculous 10 shows in one day this past Saturday in LA. Tonight, The Soft Pack are back in San Diego for their record release show at Tower Bar so it’s a great time to get out there and wish them well.
