Angels With Dirty Hands -Thomas Calabrese

Thomas Calabrese — The two young boys grew up in the neighborhood outside the back gate of Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, two blocks from the intersection of Vandegrift Boulevard and North River Road. Glenn Marlowe’s father was a former Marine and now worked as a civilian employee for Facilities Maintenance on base and Sam Tulley’s father was employed by the Oceanside water department. Glenn and Sam were more like brothers than friends. Their houses were right across the street from each other and you were just as likely to find Glenn at the Tully home as it was to find Sam over at the Marlowe residence. Glenn had two older sisters, Natalie and Cara and Sam had an older brother, Greg. There was a time when Greg dated Cara for a while, but they moved on to other people and remained friends. Birthdays and holidays were mutually shared by the Marlowe and Tully families. It was a happy childhood for the two boys who took full advantage of being adventurous and energetic in sunny Southern California. If they weren’t playing sports, Glenn and Sam could often be found at the beach with their buddies and a wide assortment of female companions, surfing and playing volleyball.

This Ain’t No Picnic

Feeling like you’ve outgrown Coachella and sleepaway camp vibes? Then how about something closer to home with the Strokes, LCD Soundsystem and a reunited Le Tigre?. This Ain’t No Picnic takes its name from one of promoter Goldenvoice’s first festivals, held in Irvine in 1999, but for a more recent comparison, the lineup has very strong FYF vibes. Like that now-defunct fest, you’ll find a genre-spanning mix of on-the-horizon acts and familiar names, including Beach House, Phoebe Bridgers, Earl Sweatshirt, Godspeed You!
