No Longer Content to Sell T-Shirts, Hot Topic Starts Booking Bands
Next time you're at Hot Topic looking for a t-shirt with an '80s cartoon character on it or a pair of pants with 16 different zippers, you might hear something surprising: live music.
Several Hot Topics around the county are booking local bands, including the one at The District at Tustin Legacy, where I took that swell pic. I've never heard of any of those acts before, and can't even find anything on the Information Superhighway about some of them ("Skoddie"?), but it's still pretty cool. I hope "No Regime" is a Morrissey reference. The District, of course, books bands regularly to play outside, on Friday and Saturday nights. What better accompaniment could there be to purchasing a Legend of Zelda hoodie?
