Sounds Like San Diego: January 21



    Tonight offers a plethora of great shows all over town, especially if you're a long-haired guitar-lovin' shredder. That's because the San Diego Experimental Guitar Show returns to the Soda Bar on the same night that Earthless celebrates 10 years together over at the Casbah. Over at Eleven, the Mexican City Rollers return with their puro rock sound, while Easta Green plays over at the Griffin with some fun tricks and guests up their sleeves. If things work out the way I'd like, however, I'll be in La Mesa, ordering up a giant ribeye steak along with some tater tots while I celebrate the three-year anniversary of the Riviera while rocking to the tunes of the Blackout Party.
