It's no secret San Diego has the best weather. Each month we ask one of our favorite San Diegans:

What else makes this city great?

Jared & Jonathan Mattson

Musicians,  The Mattson 2,
Live: Cardiff
Work: We're musicians. We work everywhere.
How Long: We've been performing gigs in the greater San Diego area for 10 years. Our parents would even drop us off at gigs some times.

Where did you grow up?

We grew up in Encinitas. Skating, surfing, music. Lou’s records, Rico’s Taco Shop. Pretty good place to live.

Why do you continue to call San Diego home (Besides the Weather)?

For some reason San Diego is an unsuspecting city for good culture. Its rad underground music scene, great food (Mexican,) and great record shops and clothing stores put it over the top. Plus, the rich skateboard culture has always inspired us. And we know the area. It’s a good thing to know a city like this.

Its not a New York or LA, but it doesn’t need to be. Those already exist. San Diego is its own thing.
