Elephants Stomp Into Casbah

Hills Like Elephants host their CD release show at the Casbah Saturday night




    We do our best not to play favorites around here, but when we hear that a great local band like Hills Like Elephants has a CD release, we get a little excited. The best part is that if you RSVP to the show on Facebook, you can get a free copy of Bedroom Colonies: Vol. 1. With Wild Wild Wets, Boy King and Jimmy Rueles, this is a stellar lineup to party your face off this Saturday night. Of course, there are other winners around town tonight, including the amazing San Fermin, performing at the Loft at UCSD. I saw the band live at the Casbah a few months back and didn't believe they could pull off the incredible vocals live, but they did, and it was stunning, and the alternating boy/girl leads on the songs make them worth delving into.
