Sounds Like San Diego: August 18th



    For anyone who thinks San Diego gets bypassed by great shows, take a look at tonight's and you might reconsider: Blues legend B.B. King is in town, and Adele is sold out at the Open Air Theatre. If those two shows alone don't get your blood pumping, She Wants Revenge is going to rock Fluxx like it hasn't been rocked in a while. The Casbah has Pictureplane and Javelin, the Belly Up has an all-local showcase, and Jesse LaMonaca is back playing a free show at West Coast Tavern. You can't go wrong tonight unless you stay home and miss it all.
