A Show of Bear Hands

Bear Hands hits the Casbah tonight before heading back to Coachella this weekend



    If you were at Coachella, or just watched the live stream, perhaps you fell into one of two categories: Those stoked to be holding tickets to tonight's sold out Bear Hands show at the Casbah, or those bummed that tickets were already sold out for the show. One thing is for sure, even when they first played the club back in 2011, it was clear that it was only a matter of time for the Brooklynites' music to catch on. Fortunately it's Friday night, so you have other options, whether that's locals Deadly Birds down at Gallagher's in OB or Kodiak up at the Tin Can. But if you really want to go somewhere and stick through an all-night party, San Diego Freak Out is calling your name at Til Two Club.
