Elephants Stomp Into Casbah

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

    Hills Like Elephants headline a great local lineup Saturday night at the Casbah.

    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.
