Fundraising app helps land G-Eazy in San Diego


Thanks to some hard work by a San Diego State student, American rapper, G-Eazy, will perform a show at 7 p.m. Thursday at House of Blues downtown.

SDSU student, Tyler Kistler, is the man behind bringing the concert to San Diego. After G-Eazy confirmed that he would perform if 600 or more tickets were sold, Kistler took to Tilt, an app that helps people collect money, to sell tickets to his friends, family and the rest of the SDSU community.

Slightly more than a week before the show, Kistler had sold more than 1,000 tickets, far surpassing the original goal of 600.

G-Eazy is both a rapper and producer born and raised in Oakland. His most current album “These Things Happen” hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in July 2014. His track “I Mean It” featuring Remo, reached No. 98 on the Hot 100 earlier this year.

For those unable to get a ticket to the House of Blues show, FLUXX Nightclub will host G-Eazy at their venue after the Thursday concert.
