With six more weeks of winter predicted by this mythical weather-forecasting groundhog, we can’t wait until CRSSD Music Festival hits us with a dose of spring this March 4th and 5th.
So in anticipation of warmer temps and palm trees galore, we’ve compiled a list of CRSSD Fest’s most awaited musical acts. With waterfront views and plenty of sunshine down in San Diego, we’re dreaming about coasting to some of our favorite beats.
I have yet to see this lovely duo live, but I am shakin’ in my boots with excitement. No, really. The juxtaposition between haunting vocals and toe-tapping percussions is simply moving. HVOB’s discography will provide you with infinite hours of indulgence.
“Life can be cruel if you’re a dreamer. I just wanna have some fun, don’t tell me what can’t be done.” Ah yes, AlunaGeorge always seems to create the most undeniably catchy songs we can’t help but Snapchat ourselves singing to.
Best known for her collaborations with Skrillex, Mija has created quite a name for herself with mind-melting electronic music on OWSLA and badass demeanor. With blinding red hair and the crispest tattoo’s I’ve ever seen, I’m stoked to watch her literally not give an f during her CRSSD set.
If you’re looking for some dark and dirty techno, you’ve come to the right place. After his soiree with the Desert Hearts Crew last March, we’ve been dying to catch Latmun live. Here’s a semi-recent release that’ll give you a healthy dose of those techno vibes.
Blood Orange is a new and foreign artist for me but after a few rounds through Spotify, I have to say I’m hooked. His sound is vaguely reminiscent of Sky Ferreira’s breathy vocals and 70’s twangs. (Fact check: he actually has written for Sky Ferreira, Tinashe, Solange Knowles, and more!) So, rest assured, we’ll be at Ocean View to catch his set.
(Wait, where was I during auditions for this video?!? AND it was directed by Gia Coppola? Speechless.)
