Sounds Like San Diego: August 17

The Casbah is bringing local goodness with Burning of Rome and Boy King



    Saturday brings a lot of local music goodness around town especially at the Casbah featuring Burning of Rome, Hills Like Elephants and Gloomsday. Plus, it's also the album release party for SoundDiego Live alums Boy King (formerly known as Bunny Gang up until they received a cease and desist from a band with the same name). These guys are an exciting force in the local scene with high energy and dramatic performances. I've heard the new record, it embodies all of which I've grown to love about Boy King. This will certainly fire up a great Saturday night for all in attendance.
