Sounds Like San Diego: July 13

Vivian Girls and a few others will bring out the cool kids at the Casbah on Friday



    I can hardly believe the weekend is only beginning, what with all of the fun that has been in town this week. While all of these great Comic-Con events exist around town, I want to stay a little more focused here because, ultimately, our focus is live music and where to hear it. Satis a special night up at the Soda Bar, with Drew Andrews and River City both celebrating  CD releases. Over at the Casbah, they continue Three Nights of the Con with Vivian Girls and a few others who should bring out the cool kids. At the Whistle Stop, our friend Robin Roth celebrates five years of Pussy Galore, this time around with the New Kinetics and the Touchies. Of course, there's also a lot to offer outside of the Con, so be sure to get your fill.
