For Local Kids to Get to Soma

"For local kids to get to Soma, it's a good 45-minute drive."

Accident Experiment drummer Ernie Longoria said he and his business partner came up with a new business plan for music-starved Alpine kids: instead of taking the kids to the music, they brought the music to the kids.

Longoria and Brown co-own the two Scatterbeans coffeehouses on the Viejas reservation. Scatterbeans put up the money for the four-band, all-age show at the Alpine Community Center. Longoria said they almost broke even on the November 11 show, which featured Accident Experiment, Broken Foundation, One Theory, and Seven Times.

"We had 200 kids [who each paid a $10 admission].... The rental was $1200, and that does not include security. We had to have, like, six or seven security guards. It was our first time. We found it was pretty costly."

"We have had other promoters call us," said Cinda Jauregui, event coordinator for the center. She said the next reserved date is January 29. That show is being promoted and organized by Dave Nestor, owner of Nestor Studios in El Cajon, which includes a recording studio and nine practice rooms. "I've recorded pretty much every punk band in San Diego.... This is the first show I've promoted on my own. Part of the reason I'm doing it is we live [in Alpine], and I have a 15-year-old daughter."

Jauregui said there were no problems with fights, booze, or facility damage at the November 11 event. She said the legal capacity of the Alpine Community Center is 300 with chairs, 630 without.

"There is nothing for kids under 21 to do up here," said Longoria about Alpine's nightlife offerings. He also presents occasional open-mike nights at Scatterbeans. Longoria said Accident Experiment, which also includes former P.O.D. guitarist Marcos Curiel, is now focusing on an out-of-state December/

January tour.

Broken Foundation, Sirens, Damnation, and Meatwagon appear 8 p.m. January 29 at the Alpine Community Center. All ages; $10 admission.
