Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 13



    There are some really great shows this week leading into a big weekend of fun. The Casbah hosts Slow Magic, Isaac Cheong returns to the stage at Lestat's, and MaryJane's Underground hosts the Touchies and the Frights. The pick of the night, however, is the Mowgli's show at the Griffin. With their hit "San Francisco," the band's hyper energy and choral harmonies make this one of the most uplifting and cheerful shows in a sea of often more somber indie music. Newcomers Blondfire are also getting some serious radio love, making this a winning bill for your Thursday night.
