Sounds Like San Diego: December 6

Fitz & the Tantrums headline 91x's Holiday Bonus show at Valley View Casino Center



    This weekend is going to be epic. Our media partners at 91x are in the joyful holiday spirit with shows all weekend that are worthy of your ears. On Friday, for example, they have the Holiday Bonus Show at Valley View Casino Center. With four incredible bands, this is definitely a great way to kick off the weekend. Fitz & the Tantrums are headlining the show, and we all know that San Diego loves the band and the band loves San Diego, so expect them to give 110 percent as always. The Airborne Toxic Event have great songs and are pretty amazing in their live performances, while Chvrches return just a few weeks after their show at House of Blues to perform, and the Royal Concept will be a hit as openers of the whole shebang. Of course, it's a big venue, so if you still prefer the more intimate stuff, Black Joe Lewis plays at the House of Blues (read our preview here), Cadillac Tramps and Creepy Creeps rock out at the Casbah, and Black Hondo headline at the king of all dives, the Tower Bar.
