Chris Cresswell, Brian Wahlstrom, Zach Quinn @ Soda Bar, San Diego

The One Week Records tour came through San Diego again, but this time, instead of label boss Joey Cape, Flatliners’ front man Chris Cresswell joined in the fun, along with Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios, Gods of Mount Olympus) and Zach Quinn (Pears). Wahlstrom and Quinn have been working together a lot, lately, forming the new project, Band-Aid Brigade, so the tour saw them playing two sets together, rather than separate solo sets. Cresswell performed an acoustic set of gorgeous songs, too. And all three played together on a few songs, aided by a saxophone-playing friend. The night was relaxed and laid-back, but loaded with humor and fun.
