Ooh La Las



    Sounds Like San Diego: December 12
    Allah-Las bring their talent to Kettner -- the indie rock band takes over the Casbah Friday night.

    It's finally Friday and I am really excited to catch this year's Wrex The Halls at Valley View Casino Center. While it's true I've never particularly loved the Sports Arena for its bouncy walls, the lineup this year is stellar and honestly the best part of the show is who you might run into while you're there. It will be my first time seeing Billy Idol, but all of the other acts I've seen at least a couple times each and they give it all at every show. For Wrex The Halls, bands tend to play abbreviated sets, which means all the best radio hits you can squeeze into one night. If you want to keep it small, Allah-Las have a sold-out show at the Casbah, the Icarus Line play at Soda Bar, and Behind The Wagon get boozy at Bar Pink.
