CtrCity Locals, What’s on Your End-of-Summer Playlist?

Nothing says summer like a summer jam. So when the barbecue parties start to wind down, and the kids start holding up their back-to-school signs, you know it’s time to retire the summer tunes—But that doesn’t mean the playlist has to end.

We spoke with people in and around CtrCity Anaheim to find out what’s on their end-of-summer playlist: whether new or old classic rock or emerging rap, the musical tastes we found in CtrCity are just as diverse as you would expect.

Jacob and Lorisse, Mini Monster Packing House

“Jacob got me into Styx, we saw them at the OC Fair. I also like 21 Pilots and Panic at the Disco!”

Emily, The Iron Press

“We’re all about Taylor Swift on Spotify right now. Personally, I’m into early 2000s power punk pop like The Ataris, Yellowcard and Taking Back Sunday. “

Jaime and Pedro, Security, Packing House

“I’m from Spain originally and am listening to the Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz.” —Jaime

“I like the cumbia group ‘Los Angeles Azules’ especially one of their newer singles ‘Nunca es Suficiente’ featuring Natalia Lafourcade.” –Pedro

Matt, The Statesman Grooming

“There are several of us who work here and everyone chooses what they play. I’m really into post-hardcore and indie. Right now, I’m listening to an L.A. band called Touchė Amorė. One of their albums To the Beat of a Dead Horse just hit its tenth anniversary. They’ve rerecorded it and I’ve been listening to that on Spotify.”

Maryan and Freud the French Bulldog, Pour Vida

I’m listening to ‘On Chill’ by Wale it’s his newest single. And Jacquess. I’m more like R&B and Hip-Hop for sure. I definitely like ‘90s hip-hop too.”

Brock and Jaime, LAG (Libations and Gaming)

“We’ll do ‘80s retro music in the bar, like synth-wave and we also have 8-bit where it will be older and newer pop but with classic video games beats and sounds.”

“At home I’m listening to a lot of Freddie Gibbs, the album that came out recently, Pinata. Pitchfork gave it an 8.4” -Brock

“I listen to Frank Ocean. The whole discography for me is good.”-Jaime
