Sounds Like San Diego: September 3

Find out why Vancouver's Said the Whale is the next big thing at the Soda Bar

    Find out why Vancouver's Said the Whale is the next big thing at the Soda Bar on Tuesday.

    It was just a few short weeks ago that I was talking up the Kopecky Family Band, who were headlining at Soda Bar. That same night, I mentioned Said the Whale, the Vancouver band that impressed me a few years back after they performed in San Diego. I even bumped into them at a random gas station in New Mexico as we were headed to SxSW. The band is finally getting the momentum they deserve and are returning with a headlining spot at Soda Bar. Said the Whale is fun and energetic. They have mastered their indie craft and deserve the "Next Big Thing" accolades.
