Sounds Like San Diego: March 1

Empires bring arena-ready rock to Soda Bar's small stage on Sunday



    Chargers Make Unexpected Kicking Change
    Empires headline Soda Bar Sunday, March 1.

    The Internet is abuzz with talk about Empires. The Chicago alt-rock band is being compared to the National and Interpol for vocalist Sean Van Vleet's deep register (we agree -- check out our profile on the band here). You can expect big things from this band who sound tailor-made for your favorite alt radio station. Of course, Soda Bar is a small room, so should this show sell out, there's an awesome show with Theophilus London at Belly Up and Gayle Skidmore's cassette release show at the Casbah.
