SAN DIEGO, September 14…..Local music has never sounded so good thanks to a new collaboration between Anthology and KPRI (102.1).

Starting October 9, the 10 p.m. sets on Friday nights will be dedicated to performances by San Diego’s emerging local artists. It’s sure to be the hottest ticket in town.

Can’t make it? Don’t worry! KPRI is broadcasting the shows live.

The first episode of “KPRI Homegrown Friday’s Live At Anthology” will feature Endoxi, Nova and Tori Roze and Anthology co-owner Marsha Berkson believes the collaboration is a sign that the local music scene is alive and thriving.

“Since Anthology opened two years ago, it has become THE place to play for local musicians,” Berkson said. “This allows many great San Diegan musicians to play in a world class club in front of enthusiastic music fans. KPRI has the most eclectic playlist of any commercial radio station in San Diego, and the local bands that play here are sure to reflect that diversity as well.”

It’s truly a sound investment in the community by both parties, especially where sound is concerned according to Homegrown Friday host Cathryn Beeks.

“Anthology has the best sound system in San Diego, if not California, and, as a result, these great local bands will sound great – both in the club and on the radio.”

The first show is October 9, with other shows following on October 23 and 30 as well as November 6 and 27. Then, starting in January, “Homegrown Friday” will be a weekly affair.”

Tickets for the shows will be $10 (including service fee), but fans will be able to upgrade their tickets to VIP seating for a slightly higher ticket price. For more information check out www.anthologysd.com or www.kprifm.com.
