Octagrape headline a great, all-local lineup at the Casbah tonight.
It was a pretty wild last couple days in San Diego, and with Pride this weekend and Comic-Con right around the corner, this just might be the busiest time of year. Which, of course, is great news for music fans. Tonight at the Casbah, Octagrape headlines an all local show with Oh, Spirit! and Big Bad Buffalo. I wrote about them just as they were going on their first tour, and now they're back. Since they're all high-schoolers, you'll have to say hi to them as they wait outside the venue for their set. Meanwhile, Soda Bar hosts a local lineup as well, including the Darrows, whom we haven't heard from in awhile, so it's also a local lineup worth checking out. Zoo performs at the Hideout, Josh Damigo performs his usual Monday at House of Blues, and the Merrow gets into the live action with Urizen.
