Blair Gun By Gilbert Soto

The SoCal band also kicked off their summer U.S. tour this week, with stops including Los Angeles, Nashville, and their hometown of San Diego. Blair Gun will later be supporting alt-rock band Nada Surf in LA this fall. See below for show details.

Fueled by urgent instrumentation and embedded with poignant lyrics, “Beat Happened” is the lead track that follows a disillusioned band reflecting on previously innovative musical icons that have devolved into unoriginal cogs in the machine.

With charged hooks like “And I think that REM, are better than all my friends, I could be just like them, but where will it end,” Blair Gun calls out the creatives that used to trailblaze massive musical movements and pokes fun at bands attempting to recreate their sound.
