West Coast Music Scene
Converging on San Diego for AMP Music Festival

San Diego, CA - In less than 3 weeks, thirty emerging artists, bands and performances will gather for the Amp Music Festival(www.ampmusicfestival.com) on September 17, 11:30-9:00pm at the Jacobs Center for Innovation at Market Creek Plaza (404 Euclid Avenue, San Diego, CA 92114). Hosted by the Asian Business Association, proceeds will fund art and music scholarships for at-risk youth in challenged socioeconomic areas throughout San Diego. The Amp Music Festival is a new all-day, all ages, outdoor concert experience with music from all genres and styles. The event features 2 stages, a beer garden sponsored by Singha Beer, food and interactive media booths.

Respected local artists such as San Diego Music Awards Best Pop Band nominee 321 Stereo and the twice-nominated Jane Lui will rock the stage, with a line-up of local heavy-hitters and trending singer/songwriters.  Attendees will hear emerging artists from around the country ; including The Slants with their Portland, Oregon forged “Chinatown-dance-rock” style and the L.A. based all-girl pop rock band Nylon Pink who notoriously claim their ‘Hello Kitty on Acid’ style.  Members of the line-up represent a new trend in independent artists who are finding their audience through self producing and social networks, such as the Bay Area’s Jennifer Chung, a YouTube star who touts over 138,866 subscribers and 34,681,092 upload views. Indie music fans can learn more about the artists, and see sample videos by visiting the Amp Music Festival website.
The event has an impressive collection of business, community, professional, and social organizations who support the event and its cause, including the producers of Allegiance, a new broadway bound musical set to premiere at the Old Globe Theatre in 2012 (http://www.allegiancemusical.com)  and local Kearny Mesa restaurant Min Sok Chon which will hold a warm-up Karaoke talent contest on September 7th. The winner of the contest will perform on stage at the festival! (Details on how to enter can be found on www.minsokchon.com).  Crowd pleasers “DANakaDAN” Mathews, TV persona Jelynn Rodriguez, and Hula Ramos of Star 94.1 will emcee (Complete list of sponsors  and partners available at www.ampmusicfestival.com/sponsors)
