The Game- write and perform live a song to title "August" or "Troubled"­

Hosted by the wonderful Cathryn Beeks of ListenLocalSD and KPRI Homegrown Hour.  This is the best event in San Diego for songwriters looking to take their songwriting to the next level, and have a really good time.  

Cathryn picks a couple song titles, this month they are "August" and "Troubled".  You write a song to the the title and perform it live on 8/17 at noon at The Parkway Bar in La Mesa.

It's a great way to break Songwriters block, meet other songwriters, play in front of the best audience in San Diego, and maybe get your song on the radio.

In addition, one lucky performer at this event will get their song recorded by a local producer FOR FREE!  And MAYBE played on KPRI's Homegrown Hour.

Questions?  Ask [masked].  Want to collaborate on a song? Come to our MeetUp on 8/6, where we will pair you up with other lyricists, composers, musicians to get your song finished and ready for its debut.

We look forward to hearing your new song.  Or if you don't have a song just join us for the fun.

$2 at the door.

    Some really good and touching songs called Troubled. Cat hit a nerve with that title!

    Lots of cool collaborative effort integrating new faces and old.

    So, what is sticking with me most this week besides dreams of trouble... "Hey, Hey, Hey here comes trouble. "

    Well, I didn't really have a song that I felt was complete... but I showed up to watch, listen and learn. What did I learn you may ask? I learned I want to be apart of this creative adventure. Everyone seemed so friendly... even the first timers. It really made a good impression on me. Thank you to all who performed and organized this meet up. Outstanding creativity, one and all.

    Hi Gabriela. I just joined up also (again) when I saw you were looking for a collaboration/help to do a song on the 17th. The thing is, I've been looking for a woman vocalist to add some emotion and strength to a few of my own songs as a duet and maybe this would bring us some inspiration to develop a little musical magic together.
    If that sounds okay to you, we should meet soon.
    I'm in San Diego but could drive if necessary. Let me know and I'll give you my number.

    Hi! I just joined the group and would love to collaborate with someone for the challenge song due on the 17th. Can you pair me up with someone??

    1 · August 12, 2014

    • Chris M.

      I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be able to do it this week. I have no extra time between now and the 17th. Good luck in your search.

      August 12, 2014

    • gabriela

      Thank you Chris perhaps we can get together some other time and share some music, let me know.
