Sounds Like San Diego: October 11

Portland's Red Fang guarantee to bring the noise at Brick by Brick on Friday

    Portland's Red Fang guarantee to bring the noise at Brick by Brick on Friday.

    The weekend is here and thankfully the rain is now a distant memory. There are tons of shows on Friday worth mentioning, but since the costumed goliath King Khan is sold out, we should focus on other shows around town: Oh, Spirit are worth seeing if you haven't already -- featuring familiar faces from other S.D. bands with a twist on the great indie sounds from which they came. If you're up for a drive to Sycuan Casino, check out Modern English. Everyone always gushes about the Iron Maidens whenever they play in town -- with girls covering Iron Maiden, you really can't go wrong. But my pick of the night has to be Red Fang. The ear-deafening, face-melting band from the Northwest always bring it hard so it's worth a trip to Brick by Brick to catch them live. It's a great Friday night no matter where you land, I'll be letting my ears bleed at the Brick.
