In 2009 my friend, Mr. Jon Jennings, decided to launch a record label and concert promotion organization. I say “organization” because there is very little money to be made in the local music scene. If you break even after a show, it’s a damn good night.
Starting a label or a band is a ton of work, and it must be done out of love; love for music, creativity, and, most importantly, the people. Quote Your Pulse has always felt to me like an organization of creative people who simply want to share their creations. Continue reading

The Velvet Underground & Nico is a misunderstood piece of art that shoves itself in the listener’s face, attempting to lock eyes in a passionate stare-down.

It started when I was in the 8th grade, when the hardcore scene was a huge thing in Los Banos. I mean HUGE! Everyone and anyone who was looking for a wild, yet potent style would be downtown at Hot Dog Heaven, (one of the only places to see a show) standing outside in a long line, waiting to get inside to show off their moves.

Editor’s Note: Meet Dustin, a.k.a EveryGiants. He’s a little shy, but you’ll warm up to him just like we have.
