Sounds Like San Diego: March 18

Bad Religion's Greg Graffin sells out House of Blues



    Five Signs That It’s Time to Get Help for Shoulder Pain
    Tim Fears
    Greg Graffin headlines the House of Blues on Saturday, March 18.

    I once saw Greg Graffin at a solo show at the Casbah, and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing him as a keynote speaker at San Diego Music Thing, but it wasn't until last fall's Ye Scallywag festival at Waterfront Park that I finally -- though I considered myself a fan for decades -- got to see Bad Religion live. And that was before the election. I cannot even imagine what Greg might have to say these days, and for the sold out crowd at the House of Blues, I imagine it will be quite a unifying and cathartic experience. Meanwhile, Jungle Fire celebrate a record release at the Casbah with their "Afro-Latin psychedelic funk," Yellowcard return to the Observatory for a last hurrah as they play their final shows and James Chance & the Contortions play Hideout. Of course, Fartbarf -- probably my favorite band name in recent history -- are playing Soda Bar, so you might just want to get down and dirty with them.
