2017 In Review

by mikelewismusic

2017 was not quite as busy for NEIN as in the past two years but it was fruitful nonetheless.  NEIN made it’s annual appearance at the San Diego County Fair as well as made their television debut on the local (San Diego) music showcase program “VV and Yourself Presents”.

March 2017 – NEIN is reviewed in San Diego City Beat Magazine

NEIN’s debut album N2.0 was reviewed in San Diego City Beat magazine during their annual “Great Demo Review” feature.  The review was quite favorable towards the album.

March 2017 – NEIN is included in the compilation disc “Staring at the Sun XII”

NEIN’s single “(I Wanna Incite A) Riot” was included on the local compilation disc “Staring at the Sun XII”, released on Blindspot Records.  The album was compiled by local San Diego music legend Bart Mendoza, and the song received favorable reviews.  Clifford and mikelewismusic represented the band at the release party held at the Casbah.

NEIN performs at Winston’s

NEIN once again graced the stage as the featured band at the weekly Open Mic hosted by the iconic Jefferson Jay at Winston’s in OB.  NEIN played a powerful set to an appreciative audience.

NEIN at the San Diego County Fair

As is seemingly customary every year, NEIN made their annual appearance at the San Diego County Fair, gracing the Coors Light Rock On stage on Flag Day (June 14).  The band had a lot of fun, the audience danced and enjoyed the music, and drummer CHRIS CRIM! debuted his new original song “Writing on the Wall”

 

NEIN on the Radio

NEIN made two appearances on local radio podcast “Listen Local SD” hosted by Cathryn Beeks.  On May 11 “Take that Girl” was featured, and on June 8 “Situation” was featured.

NEIN’s television debut

NEIN made their television debut on the local music showcase program “VV and Yourself Presents”.  This television show has been on the air for over 30 years and practically anyone who has made their mark in the San Diego music scene has appeared on the program – and now we can add NEIN to the list.  The program showcased the dynamic talents of the band, and the director (Victoria Valentine, “VV”) and the crew all enjoyed the band’s presentation during the taping.

 

In 2018 the band plans to make regular appearances at Winston’s and other venues, as well as secure gigs at the San Diego County Fair and December Nights.  We’d like to thank all of our supporters and friends who bought the music, came to the gigs, wore the t-shirts, watched the videos, gave us pats on the back, and just plain supported us throughout the years – we truly appreciate you!  We look forward to a great 2018 and invite you to come along for the ride.
