Local band Wavves makes strong statement against Trump, racists and homophobes

The San Diego-based band’s front man, Nathan Williams, recently took to Twitter to address his current issue with those who attend his shows. He stated that he wanted to make it clear who he did not want at his shows. Those people include: Donald Trump supporters, racists, homophobes, anyone who blames rape victims for what happened to them and those who defend American police. What do you think? Is the singer being too radical?

Uber is teaming up with MTS for free pool rides

Uber has partnered with the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) to encourage San Diegans and tourists to utilize public transportation. The offer gives Uber Pool-riders $5 off of their trips that begin or end near one of the 20 MTS transit centers across San Diego. The promotion will last throughout July and is limited to one per user. The idea is that if you use Uber Pool (the company’s cheapest option) and have riden through MTS, you wll just need to get a few more miles to your final destination. The $5 will hopefully, the company said, equate to a free ride or at least help with some congestion on the San Diego roads.
