Nothington, The Bombpops @ The Hideout, San Diego

Releasing their first full-length album in some six years, the San Francisco Bay area’s Nothington made the trek down the west coast, landing in San Diego’s Hideout on a recent Saturday night. The crowd enjoyed their songs, new and old, and a couple of their friends were invited to join them on stage for some of the songs. Accompanying them were The Bombpops, fresh from their debut LP release on Fat Wreck Chords. For LA’s Bombpops, it was a homecoming of sorts, as the band got their start in the far north San Diego suburb of Oceanside.
