Sounds Like San Diego: April 20



    I've written ad nauseum about my adventures at this year's South By Southwest conference and festival. What I didn't really get to write about was the bands I didn't get to see. There are hundreds of bands that flood Austin, and though I ran into the guys in Fake Problems on two separate occasions -- and was able to hang out and chat with them a bit -- I seemed to always just miss their showcases. The band is on the road, however, so not only do I get to see them in my favorite venue, but because they're headlining, they'll get to play a full set as opposed to the short sets granted to bands at SxSW. On top of all that, the Pomegranates blew me away when they played the Casbah last year, so seeing them as support definitely tickles my eardrums. Get yourself to the Casbah tonight and support some touring bands that actually make me a little weak in the knees and remind me just how much of a fangirl I can be.
