Miss Erika Davies is one of San Diego's rising stars with unique vocal style that is a throwback to the early 20th century.
It's getting pretty normal for Thursday night to be the night of torture. There are more things going on than any one person can digest, let alone attend, but tonight we celebrate another night of SoundDiego LIVE. This time we take over Analog Bar downtown, so get ready for some tall cans of Colt 45 or PBR as you sink your teeth into some "totchos" -- tater-tot nachos. This place has some of the best bar food around, so make sure you grab some sliders or their amazing grilled cheese as you enjoy performances by Miss Erika Davies and the Smart Brothers, or as you sit in a booth playing Mortal Combat among friends while enjoying the OwlandBear boys as your selectors.
From Analog, there are plenty of choices to keep the night going, including one of San Diego's latest bands to burn up the scene, Grand Tarantula, playing with d/wolves over at El Dorado, some jazz-infused fun with Red Fox Tails up at West Coast Tavern, the gorgeous songs of Trash Can Sinatras at AMSD, or JP & Chrissie Hynde up at the Belly Up.
