Sounds Like San Diego: February 25



    Last night, we had Rocky Votolato in town at the Casbah. Tonight, the same stage will be graced by his brother Cody (Blood Brothers) while he tours with frenetic rockers Telekinesis. They have a solid lineup, with the Love Language and the local boys in the Howls. If you're all Casbah'd out, San Diego's the Donkeys are up at Eleven, and since they generally only play a handful of local shows a year, you might want to catch them while you can. If you're looking for a solid all-ages lineup, you can make the trek to UCSD, where Young the Giant will hit the stage. They did a residency at the Casbah a while back and they're doing pretty well on the radio charts across the country, so it looks like their star is rising quickly.
