Razorcake Podcast #139: With Jeff Proctor

So, this is my third podcast I’ve done for Razorcake now. The first two I focused on San Diego area bands that I enjoy. This time I wanted to take a little road trip out of San Diego, taking the I-8 east, picking up bands from towns along the way, with bands from El Centro and Yuma (and with a brief detour into the Phoenix metro area) before finishing up in Tucson. From the Spanish missionaries to the active, working bands today, people have been traveling this route for centuries, traversing the mountains and deserts, exchanging ideas and culture along the way. This is certainly reflected by the philosophical and musical commonalities of the bands I picked for today’s podcast. Enjoy!
