We are officially kicking off the “Local Artist of the Week” blog series here on the world-famous KZSC Website! To start off strong, we will be showcasing Solar Glory, a Santa Cruz-based space rock/experimental/drone/post-prog/psychedelic group! Check out their Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/Solar-Glory-754435481366692/?fref=ts
Out of all the local artists, why does Solar Glory take this week’s prize? The three best reasons are:
- They just released an out of this planet new album called Pilot on Bandcamp this past Thursday, Feb. 18th! Check it out here: https://solarglory.bandcamp.com/releases
- They’re the dark, spacey, psychedelic rock band that Santa Cruz has been missing!
- They will be playing a set at West Fest (a free music festival at UCSC’s College Eight) this Friday, February 26th from 4-7:30p.m. Check out the Facebook Event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1966661106892721/
