Sounds Like San Diego: December 9



    You've got some pretty serious choices to make tonight. For those of you on a tight budget, there are great free shows at West Coast Tavern, with Old Tiger; Western States Motel at Bar Pink; and Tape Deck Mountain playing a rare hometown show at the Whistle Stop. You can probably hop between all three shows if you plan appropriately. You can also check out great lineups at the Casbah, Tin Can, Soda Bar and Eleven, or get nostalgic and head to the House of Blues to check out the Gracious Few, a new band made up of members of Candlebox and Live. It's a good night to be out, so whatever you do, designate a driver and have a great pre-weekend sendoff.
