025: The Heavy Guilt

This week we rocked out 'MTV Unplugged' style with local band The Heavy Guilt. They stripped down to a four piece - vocals, acoustic guitars, rhodes, and bass - for this exclusive Dirty Thursdays performance. The Guilt has been a scourge at San Diego bars and clubs for about the last two years.  They're gearing up for the release of "In The Blood", which will be out on vinyl, CD, and MP3 next month.


The Heavy Guilt is Erik Canzona on guitar and lead vocals, Josh Rice on rhodes, Jason Littlefield on bass, and Sean Martin on guitar. The full band also includes Jenny Merullo on drums/vocals, and Al Howard on percussion/toys (and he's also the lyricist).

Check out their CD release show at the Glashaus Device Gallery on July 16th.
