Sounds Like San Diego: December 21

The Frights play a free in-store at M-Theory on Saturday



    This Saturday brings a wide assortment of local garage, indie and good ol' rock & roll. At the Tower Bar, psychedelic throwbacks the Loons headline, while the Greyboy Allstars bring their acid jazz to the Belly Up. The Griffin hosts a Christmas party with some of our faves, including the most partying of all party bands, Gone Baby Gone, while the Schitzophonics shake things up at the Casbah. For those of you who might be motivated to catch some free early evening music, the Frights perform an in-store at M-Theory, with free pizza, as they celebrate their cassette release party. I've heard it, it is awesome, and you should definitely support what these kids are doing. Lots of choices as we wind down th efinal shopping weekend before Christmas ...
