Five Awesome San Diego Bands Witnessed at the North Park Music Thing

For two nights, the North Park Music Thing took over San Diego's North Park venues and transformed it into a SxSw Lite. In the daytime, various panels and talks were held on the state of the music industry at the Lafayette Hotel; at night, local bands performed at showcases throughout North Park. It kind of made me wish we had something similar in Orange County.
After the jump, check out five awesome San Diego bands we discovered.

Noise rock/chill wave reminiscent of supposed cohorts the Dum Dum Girls, this is San Diego's hipster best.

Kings of Leon meets Van Morrisson, but definitely doing their own thing. 

Gimmicky surf punk that make you want to dress up, as well.

Gritty rock, the way it should be.

They kind of make you realize how the Stone Temple Pilots came from San Diego.
