September 26, 2016 at 8:11 AM (PT)
LOCAL MEDIA SAN DIEGO Alternative XTRA-F (91X)/SAN DIEGO announces the station’s annual "WREX THE HALLS" concerts will be SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10th and SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11th, at VALLEY VIEW CASINO CENTER.
Night #1 (12/10), 91X presents BECK, BAND OF HORSES, LOCAL NATIVES, GLASS ANIMALS, and BISHOP BRIGGS.
Night #2 (12/11), 91X has SAN DIEGO’s breakout bands, local punk legends BLINK-182 and PIERCE THE VEIL, plus JIMMY EAT WORLD, KALEO, and an opening spot for a local band to be determined by means of a competition hosted by the station.
Tickets for both concerts go on-sale this FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th at 10a. An Internet pre-sale on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th will give 91X listeners the first chance to purchase tickets.
“These concerts are over 20 years in the making,” said 91X PD MIKE HALLORAN. “91X played BECK first in 1994, when a former phone op sent us a white label 12” titled ‘Loser.’ Less than a year later, our local program 91X LOUDSPEAKER first aired ‘Carousel,’ off a cassette made by some kids in POWAY calling themselves ‘Blink.’ Here we are, after two decades and millions of records sold, those artists are now headlining our holiday concerts. We are beyond elated.”
GARETT MICHAELS, Director Of Rock for SDLocal added, “At 91X we’re proud to be the leader when it comes to new music discovery and supporting local. This year’s edition of WREX THE HALLS certainly reinforces that. We’re honored to present two diverse nights that show the musical breadth and heritage of 91X.”
