Sounds Like San Diego: December 18



    It's a rare night in San Diego when three of the music mainstays are closed to the public, but with parties galore, tonight the Casbah, Anthology and the Belly Up are all closed. This leaves some tough choices elsewhere, with Judas Priest's Rob Halford at 4th & B, Primitive Noyes headlining Bar Eleven, and Roxy Monoxide playing their swan song at Humphreys Backstage Lounge early in the evening. If anything, you should just check out something new, because if not now, when will you ever?
