September is the new spring. This will be the biggest festival weekend we’ve seen in Southern California in two years. While Same but different is happening in Riverside County, Brew Ska Ska is set in Orange County and BeachLife launches its second installment on Friday at Redondo Beach.

Things will definitely be different with the COVID-19 rules in place, and Thursday morning BeachLife has canceled plans to offer free coronavirus tests for its participants after the withdrawal of its supplier.

In other news, the Stones added another SoFi show and Danny Elfman does a second night of “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. Oh, and we visited the new Pink Floyd exhibit in LA with Nick Mason!

Pandemic changes

The BeachLife Festival kicks off Friday at Redondo Beach. To enter, participants must provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or show the results of a negative test taken within 72 hours. The festival planned to offer free tests on site, but that is not the case now. Here is why not.

Terry Corso of We Are Pigs and Alien Ant Farm stopped by the Can’t Feel the Heat podcast to talk with us about all things Coachella. My personal pro tip: If I spot Terry on the pitch, I have to stop whatever I’m doing and follow him to see a good set. This is how I discovered Trash Talk in 2013. Find out on Apple podcasts and Spotify.
