Miss New Buddha, Dark Black, Lanterns @ Blonde Bar, San Diego

New bands can be hit and miss. But when the band is made up of creative and talented musicians, it can be exciting. Miss New Buddha was formed in late 2017 by members of various bands from San Diego’s indie rock scene, all uniquely capable and artistic. They’ve played merely a handful of gigs thus far, but their music is well-honed and definitely has the signature San Diego sound. Joining Miss New Buddha were Dark Black, visiting from Las Vegas, and Lanterns, who made the trip down from Los Angeles.
