I got pretty lucky with my…

For more information on Mega Sun, visit www.facebook.com/megasuntheband. Parsons was kind enough to answer the Lucky 13; here are his answers. What was the…

Off Kilter performed at the September CV Independent Presents show at The Hood Bar and Pizza with The Bermuda and Kosha Dillz. It was the duo’s first full live set (after some open-mic appearances at The Hood and the Big Rock Pub)—and they were fantastic. They recently arrived in the Coachella Valley from Santa Cruz; hopefully, there’s more to come. For more information on Off Kilter, visit www.facebook.com/offkiltermusic. T-Lick of Off Kilter was kind enough…
