Brother, Can You Spare a Dime Novel?



    This week's SoundDiego spotlight highlighted Jesse LaMonaca, so it's hard to find more to say about Jesse LaMonaca & the Dime Novels we haven't already said. They've put blood, sweat and tears into The Lament of Tumbleweed Hawk, and on Saturday night they celebrate the release of the record at the Casbah. Along with the Blackout Party, the Black Sands and the Fire Eaters, the Dime Novels will be joined by many of the varied local musicians who made guest appearances on the record. It will be a solid lineup that will leave no doubt that this city is bulging with amazing local talent.
