Even from the very first glance I knew
The world that lay behind memory:
A cancellation of happening. Free
As I was I gave strangeness its due.

It begins in a kind of thunderous
Rift between the images of a past
Not wholly ours and when tomorrow’s last
Deception stops thrilling us.
— Escorted Trips


Reality House West is a group dedicated to supporting indie music in San Diego. We share a passion for connecting artists with new fans, venues, and each other, and aim to democratize opportunities and resources for local musicians, as well as touring artists passing through our beautiful city. We put on shows every once in a while, host an annual festival called Escorted Trips, and work closely with the incredible team at Studio West and our friend Max Wright to produce live video sessions, so we can share the talent from our region with the world.
