Reel Big Fish ska out at the House of Blues Saturday night.
As we kick off 2014, hopefully you’ve saved up enough energy to get out and enjoy some great shows and DJ events in San Diego over the next few days.
Friday at the Casbah
it’s the Paladins, Big Sandy and His Flyrite Boys and the Bedbreakers. Pato Banton hits the Belly Up
, Darks of Heaven and Prayers are at the Ken Club

On Saturday, join me for Club Ascension at the Kava Lounge. DJs Michael, Bloodsport and yours truly will be playing the best in dark underground dance music. Plus, ticket giveaways for VNV Nation and Skinny Puppy throughout the night. Grab more details here
. Another fun event on my radar is the Dragons, the Creepy Creeps, Phantoms and Black Hondo as part of the 25th Anniversary of the Casbah
this month. At Soda Bar

, and Neveready plays at The Griffin
