Shelter Skelter :: Bogan Villa Taps Marcus Morales For ‘Quarantine Blues’

Like the vast majority of us, the fellas of Bogan Villa and the homie Marcus Morales have been patiently waiting for COVID-19 and the ever-changing shelter-in-place orders to be a thing of the past.  As professional musicians, it can be tough when not only your livelihood but your main outlet are suddenly taken away from you.  As 2020 came to an end, however, both parties decided to combine forces for Quarantine Blues, a topical jam session clocking in at just over ten minutes.  If you’ve got the time, give it a listen… if you’ve got the funds, cop it in support… regardless of what you choose to do, share it around so others can enjoy!

Banding Together :: Fem-Fest Compiles The Third Edition Of ‘A Chronicle Of Martian Melodies’

a2020983431_10

Not only does San Marcos possess a vivid artistic and creative community, it also has a community full of supportive people that provide assistance for most anyone in any situation.  One of the more well-known and respected San Marcos institutions is the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center, a non-profit organization to help victims of domestic abuse and violence.  Normally, Fem-Fest puts together an event as a fundraiser to help, but due to logistics, the 2019 event did not come together.  Luckily, a laundry list of talented San Martians chipped in a song for a fundraising compilation : Winter Fires, Youngsville, Water On Mars, Sp_aces, Elevaded, Plain Zane, Shelly Webster, Cameron Elise, Lizzie Karr, Nix Nova, and Marcus Morales all contributed songs in hopes that the compilation can raise a sizable donation.  If you’re looking to help support, stop by the Bandcamp page and grab a copy… there are people out there that will certainly appreciate it.
