For our first Local Flavor concert of 2013, the Museum partners with Blindspot Records to present, Sounds Like San Diego! at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad.
The event will features current artists performing past hit songs that have been written and recorded by some San Diego's best known hitmakers (i.e. Gary Puckett, the Cascades, Jason Mraz, Ratt, Jewel, the Zeros, Chris Hillman, Iron Butterfly, and more).
The evening's lineup will include Jack Tempchin, Joey Harris, Patric Petrie, Neon Cough, True Stories, Marie Haddad, Scott Mathiasen, The Comeuppance, Kevin Martin, and The Heavy Guilt.
Tickets to this event are $20 and include food and beverages. Beverages are generously sponsored by Stone Brewing Company, Flippin Pizza and Knockout Pizza.
Jack Tempchin is best known for writing the Eagles classic "Peaceful Easy Feeling" (celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2012) and co-writing their hits "Already Gone", "The Girl From Yesterday," "Somebody," and "It's Your World Now."
A regular performer and prolific songwriter, Jack is one of San Diego's most beloved musical icons who maintains a supportive presence within the San Diego music and songwriting community.
Joey Harris began his musical career in the late seventies playing lead guitar for proto-Americana songwriter John Stewart. In 1983, Joey began working with San Diego drummer Country Dick Montana. This relationship would eventually propel him into Montana's cowpunk band, The Beat Farmers. Following the success of The Beat Farmers, Harris launched into a number of bands and side projects with his fellow artists, including: Powerthud, The Pleasure Barons, the Joey Show, and Slim & the Crowbars. His main group, however, became Joey Harris & the Mentals, featuring Mighty Joe Longa, Jef Kmak, and Josh Mader.
Patric picked up the fiddle shortly after the age of four and has been amazing audiences with her talents ever since. Her songs and style draw inspiration from generations of Celtic women who laboured daily to maintain their families and culture, and shared their passion for life and love through their music. Patric has been featured on several CDs with the renowned Irish/Flamenco World Fusion band Skelpin', Highland Way, Brian Baynes, Danny Green, Brian Connelly, and is now hard at work on her first full-length CD, "Wild Irish Rose"
Having gained stage and performance experience in various San Diego bands, Marie Haddad solidified her musical direction when she joined the 12-piece, 60s-era soul outfit, The San Diego Beat Organization. The group received a San Diego Music Award nomination for Best New Band in 2002, but disbanded shortly thereafter.
It was then that she began peforming her own songs. With drummer Nasr Helewa and bassist Jason Hee, Haddad recorded the groups debut CD 'A Beautiful Road' in 2006. Currently, Marie frequently collaborates and performs in the region.
Neon Cough's music is a mix of sunny surf-pop melodies with a spookier shoe-gaze vibe. Their debut album was nominated for Best Pop Album at the San Diego Music Awards and their second record "Dracula's Mixtape" was recently released. They can currently be seen performing around Southern California.
Scott Mathiasen, formerly of The Infants, is founder of Scott Mathiasen & The Shifty-Eyed Dogs, who formed in 2010 to perform music that was originally recorded on Scott's debut solo EP. His influences range from The Beatles, Chuck Berry, Elvis Prelsley, and Muddy Waters to Howlin' Wolf, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Elvis Costello, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Hank Williams, James Brown, and Kurious.
The Comeuppance originated in San Francisco as a cello/guitar and vocals duo. Songwriter/composer David Fleminger (native San Diegan; Manual Scan and The Answers) and cellist Heather Vorwerck have moved to San Diego and expanded their set-up to include bass and drums. The Comeuppance doesn't sit square inside any one style. The guitar playing is akin to Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and Nokie Edwards; the cello slides from parlor music, to gypsy jazz, to an Alfred Hitchcock movie soundtrack.
Kevin's style of music is what he calls "Throwback Pop" - which takes his modern flair for performance and combines it with his love of vintage piano-pop stylings. As a solo pop-rock songwriter, his sound has been once (perhaps twice) described as "Burt Bacharach meets Queen and Elton John." He is a seasoned artist - most notably playing keyboards and co-writing for established San Diego pop-rockers, Get Back Loretta, who have won a total of six San Diego Music Awards during his tenure.
True Stories is a quirky rock trio fronted by Manual Scan and Shambles front man Bart Mendoza. Stylistically the band covers a lot of ground. Primarily a blend of rock, powerpop, new wave, mod and garage sounds, the band is equally capable at the occasional ballad or folk rock tune, should the occasion call for it.

Kelsea Rae Little started her San Diego music career with local folk-rock band The Wrong Trousers in 2006. After the band's indefinite hiatus, she decided to venture out on her own.
Kelsea plays the concert harp, among whatever other instruments are captivating her at the time. Her songs are at once cutesy and thought-provoking. She enjoys performance for the opportunity to share her views and inspirations with the world. (Photo: Dennis Anderson)
Stone Brewing doesn’t just make beer; we make craft beer. That means we’re Independently owned, comparatively small, and use authentic brewing methods and ingredients. We focus exclusively on making distinctive, high-quality beers that have become synonymous with San Diego County.
Furthermore, Stone has been recognized by the industry’s leading voices as one of the top brewers in the world. BeerAdvocate Magazine, a highly respected craft beer publication and website, named Stone “All-Time Top Brewery On Planet Earth”—twice. RateBeer.com, a highly trafficked beer enthusiast website, has named Stone Brewing Co. to their “Top 10 Breweries” in the world list 10 years in a row—making Stone the only brewery to earn that honor.
Stone Brewing is one of the principle originators and leaders of the “West Coast”-style of brewing, which is known for big-character and aggressive hoppiness (bitterness). This style has inspired small brewers all over the world to create similarly styled beers. We are honored by the recognition and have often been inspired in return.

For 105 years, Knockout Pizza & Flippin’ Pizza has served authentic, hand-tossed, NY-style pizza to people like you. Well, sort of. See our pizza is 105 years old. No, that’s not right either.
It’s like this—the year is 1903, the Model T was just invented, Teddy Roosevelt was in the White House, and pizza had just come to America. Real pizza. The kind we imagine hungry dock-workers ate, or delivery boys on the run, or those guys who built those big NY skyscrapers, they ate this kind of slice. So what’s that got to do with Flippin’ Pizza and Knockout Pizza? Because that’s the kind of pizza we stand here and make every day. A real, honest pie. An old-school, ‘I’m from Brooklyn and you’re not’ pizza. A New York original, since 2007.
