What better way to cap such an exhilarating year of music than by throwing a bash! San Diego based radio station 91X sculpted a fest to end all. Wrex The Halls is a festival that quickly obtained everyone’s senses and got them ‘in tune’ with each other. Drawing in a crowd from many neighboring cities and states, Wrex, quickly became a sold out show. Those that were in attendance were able to see many musical acts and become mesmerized by eclectic tunes, crowd, and overall energy that we have all been thriving off of this year.

Taking place at the San Diego Valley View Casino Center, Wrex The Halls put on one heck of a show-clearly it sold out!  Full of a few of our favorite Indie Acts! Vampire Weekend is an rock band out of New York that gives the audience exactly what they want, which is a high energy performance that will get you out of your seat! Arctic Monkeys are no stranger either! Thanks to their latest album, AM, the band has struck a chord that has made them sky rocket on the charts. Their latest single “Do I Wanna Know” has put Arctic Monkeys in a whole new light; it’s a tune that definitely shows off their musical capabilities and a must-hear.

Alt-J are a British band that has been constantly on the rise. Starting off the night with a few of our favorites, the group is coming off of the release of their debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’. Tessellate, off of their latest album definitely got the night started right. This group is one that needs to be on your radar for the year to come. 

A nice mix of rock with folk, The Silent Comedy  is a band originally from San Diego. J. Roddy Walston & The Business is an rock n’ roll band hailing form Cleveland, Tennessee. Adding to the high energy of the night the group is well known for their live shows and enchanting style of playing the piano.

A band that needs no introductions, Queen of the Stone Age, headlined this years festival. Their performance got everyone intoxicated and drunkenly falling in love with them all over again. A mix of oldies as well as some samples from the new record, Queens of The Stone Age not only recapped the night in one set, but made it be known that the importance of musicality is ever so relevant and resides in most.
