Joey Molinaro and his east coast buddies, Eric Alexander and Lucio Menegon traveled across America in an old diesel stopping at rad spaces and "wallstreet occupations" along the way. On Jan. 7 in San Diego, Molinaro visited the Purple Haus with his unique blend of violin and grindcore, his friends also brought along their guitars and played an interesting mix of acoustic heavy metal love ballads and technical acoustic rock n roll.

Surprising the crowd, who caught him at his last performance at the Purple Haus, Molinaro opened up with an experimental song he wrote that includes vocals. "Now I'm going to play grindcore," Molinaro said as he put his bow to the strings and thrashed his boots upon the floor. Playing for nearly twenty intense minutes with only a brief pause in between, Molinaro put on quite the show.

Opening up and ending the hootenanny was the Nomad Orchestra, or at least the members that took a break from busking downtown or at Balboa Park. With banjo, diy upright bass and accordion they produce a nice old-time music that sounds a bit like Appalachian folk, cajun, Americana and bluegrass.

Someone also brought some fresh squeezed orange juice. Yep.
