I hope everyone had a great Independence Day weekend. There wasn't much in the way of live music, but tonight things are back in full gear, and I can say that most of my friends will be at one of two places: the Casbah or San Diego's Symphony Hall. The locals of the Silent Comedy are kicking off a tour with Los Angelinos Saint Motel, and the Silent Comedy always prove to put on a riotous show at the beloved Casbah. The Howls will be joining them tonight, too, which means if you have a ticket, you'll want to be there when the doors open. In the much larger symphony hall, local boy gone huge Eddie Vedder will be taking the stage. To be honest, I don't know if he'll be playing from all over his catalogue or sticking to his new eukele-driven record, but fans of the man will certainly get a performance worth talking about. Grammy-winning performer Glen Hansard opens up the night.
