Sounds Like San Diego: May 22



    San Diego is going old school tonight. Two longtime San Diego bands -- Battalion of Saints and Buck-o-Nine -- are playing (separately) tonight. The Saints formed in 1980 and have seen various lineups over the years and 30 years later are shooting a video and playing an all-out punk rock show at the Shakedown. Buck-o-Nine formed in 1991 and have seen their share of lineup changes over the years, too, but their ska has stayed well intact. Tonight, they'll open for legendary 2 tone ska band Bad Manners, from England. Be ready to get your skank on tonight at the Casbah.
