If there's ever been a doubt that San Diego has an incredible music scene, you can direct non-believers to tonight's top shows. After a successful UK run with Brandon Flowers (The Killers), Transfer has been asked to support several of his solo U.S. dates. To kick it off, they'll perform at Sound Wave for the first time before heading out on the road. Other locals are all over the place, with New Mexico celebrating their CD release at Tin Can, the Dragons rocking Eleven, and even Unwritten Law performing at House of Blues. This doesn't even touch the touring bands hitting San Diego or the dozens of other shows around town, but you can take a peek and see for yourself and find your own way to a killer Saturday night.
Saturday, Nov. 20:
Transfer, Republic of Letters, Dead Feather Moon @ Sound Wave
New Mexico (CD release), Grand Tarantula, Mrs. Magician, Scruffles @ Tin Can
Mike Merinda and Ruthy Unger Merinda @ San Dieguito United Methodist Church
