The 6th Annual San Diego Music Thing (SDMT) two-day music and media conference and festival comes to 20 stages on September 13 and 14, featuring 2 days of music from 160 bands and 90 speakers. Headlining this year’s event are Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth and Mike Herrera from MxPx and Tumbledown.

Gordon is best known as a founding member of iconic noise-rock band Sonic Youth and has been involved in numerous collaborations with other artists and musicians including Julie Cafritz, Thurston Moore, Lydia Lunch, Vincent Gallo and Yoko Ono. Gordon’s current collaborative project Body/Head with guitarist Bill Nace will also perform during SDMT. Mike Herrera is best known for fronting the band MxPx. Fans that have followed Herrera’s twists and turns may also be aware of the singer’s work with Tumbledown and with a band called Arthur.

In addition to great venues like the Casbah, Bar Pink, and Soda Bar, SDMT has added some marquee venues including The Birch North Park Theatre, The Griffin and The Irenic. Getting into marquee venues will require you to purchase a super badge, a single ticket or an add-on ticket if you purchase a 2-day badge. New daytime features include artist sessions, mentoring, an instrument petting zoo, pop-up shops and much more.

In addition to offering thought provoking industry panels, mentoring, and demo review sessions you can expect to see over 160 up-and-coming bands on 20 eclectic stages. Also, debuting this year is a revamped trade show featuring some of San Diego’s best local artists and artisans, gear manufacturers and much more.
