The Altruists feat. Ashley Mazanec at The GO!
We are very excited to bring The Altruists to The GO stage to wrap up the summer! They were one of the acts on the Garden of Eating Stage during this year's EarthFair in Balboa Park (April), and we were knocked out!
"With the Altruists it's not what you see, particular sounds, or words you know. It's about how they make you feel: Thrills of joy, pain, wonder, fear and understanding. They play as hard as they can, trying not to scare anyone. Serious fun for all; waves of emotion. Come along - they'll let you down softly."
-Garth Murphy, Author, Encinitas Surf Junkie
The Altruists are a conscious San Diego-based band promoting environmental and social justice. Their progressive rock roots are clearly infused with influences ranging from classical and jazz to soul.
Featuring songwriter Ashley Mazanec, whose new CD, "Let's Talk About the Weather" includes the title track as well as "Flood the Streets," and "Power to the People." Listen to get a taste of this very talented songwriter, musician and performer: http://ashleymariemazanec.com/music
