Sounds Like San Diego: June 13

Chess Wars, with SoundDiego's own Dustin Lothspeich on guitar, play the Casbah on Friday with Dead Feather Moon and Strange Vine.



    I know Jake Shimabukuro is in town -- he's amazing, and if you plan on driving to Harrah's Southern California Resort, you're going to have a great show. And Darius "Don't Call Me Hootie" Rucker is at the San Diego County Fair -- presumably performing as a country pop artist and not a pop rock artist -- and that could be really fun, too, but all bets are on local music on Friday. The Creepy Creeps are going to destroy Bar Pink, Lady Dottie should have booties shaking at the Hideout, and Flaggs celebrate an album release at Whistle Stop. Really, though, the highlight of the night is at the Casbah. SoundDiego associate editor Dustin Lothspeich will perform with one of his projects, Chess Wars; Strange Vine, the Fresno duo that has been blowing minds in San Diego for the last few years, makes its return; and Dead Feather Moon headline what I believe is their first show since April. So, yes, there are dozens of choices on Friday night. I'd like to believe that you can't go wrong with whatever live music you choose.
