    Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 27
    Metalachi return to San Diego on Friday for a Casbah show.

    The weekend is finally here, and Friday night is stacked with fun acts to get your weekend momentum moving in the right direction. The Casbah is sold out with Metalachi, but another tribute, the all-female Zepperella, plays at Brick By Brick. The Highwayman gets in the tribute game with a Johnny Cash birthday celebration at the Belly Up (technically, the Man in Black's big day was Thursday), and the locals of Griever rock out their record release at Soda Bar. Your winner, though, might just be the Belfast band Girls Names, who are at the Hideout, with openers Flaamingos.
