Marklyn Retzer Trio Live At Lola’s

by The Editors on March 29, 2021

Local musician Marklyn Retzer is bringing his trio to Lola’s 7UP Market and Deli on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at noon for a two-hour live set of acoustic guitar based groove rock. The show will be outside on the steps of the museum across from the store. There is plenty of room to sit outside and spread out, and even some picnic tables and chairs available. Bring a lawn chair and make it easier to get your own space. 

Why Lola’s? Here’s what Marklyn has to say:

Lola’s has legendary burritos and tacos. My kids started eating burritos there before they could even look over the counter. I’m stoked to be bringing music to support them and I’m looking forward to getting the songs out in the air.

Lola’s is located at 3292 Roosevelt St, in Carlsbad. For more info please click the link.

Carlsbad Music Festival To Return in 2021

by The Editors on June 27, 2020

In a June 27, 2020 letter to friends and supporters of the Carlsbad Music Festival Founder and Artistic Director Matt McBane lamented the cancelation of the 2020 festival and 17 consecutive years of music in Carlsbad and looked forward optimistically to 2021 when he says the festival will return.

After much creative brainstorming, discussion and reflection, we determined that with the pandemic and the restrictions in place, there was no way for our small organization to hold the Festival or alternative programming this summer. But don’t worry, we will be back in 2021! 

For the complete letter, please follow the jump.

Cellist Ashley Bathgate At St. Michael’s Chapel

by The Editors on February 7, 2019

The Carlsbad Music Festival Presents Sonic Chapel with cellist Ashley Bathgate Friday, February 15, 2019.

The desire to create a dynamic energy exchange with her audience and build upon the ensuing chemistry is a pillar of Bathgates’s philosophy as a performer. Her affinity to dynamism drives Bathgate to venture into previously uncharted areas of ground-breaking sounds and techniques, breaking the mold of a cello’s traditionally perceived voice. Collaborators and fans alike describe her vitality as nothing short of remarkable and magical for all who are involved. Bathgate is a member of the award-winning, internationally acclaimed sextet Bang on a Can All-Stars, the chamber music group HOWL, and is also a founding member of TwoSense, a duo with pianist Lisa Moore, and Bonjour, a low-strung, percussive quintet.
