Welcome to Obvious Friday. Yes, it's April 20, or "420" day, where every band with any name inferring cannibis performs around San Diego. We get it. Very original. If that whole world isn't for you, however, you can still see some decent shows tonight. Guitar Wolf from Japan takes the stage at the Casbah, Brooklyn buzz-band Country Mice performs at the Soda Bar and outlaw country act Wayne "The Train" Hancock performs at the Shakedown. For those of you with a more cultured sensibility, Anoushka Shankar performs at Balboa Theatre.
