Sounds Like San Diego: November 3



    This is a little bit embarassing to admit, but I've been a local music supergroupie ever since I was in high school. I listened to Loudspeaker religiously and recorded all of the shows on my cassette deck so I would always have local music to listen to. In my senior year, my English teacher invited her friend Steve Poltz to come play for our class as he explored the history of music from the early 20th century to the present. I was already a fan from those cassette tapes, but seeing Steve live for the first time was a turning point in my life in many ways, and I was hooked on local music forever.

    All of these years later, I carry a special fondness for Steve, not only because he's been a great friend and is such an amazing musician, but because of all of the charity and public good he's been involved with over the years. On Saturday, he'll be playing a special benefit at Mission Brewery in East Village. All proceeds benefit the Barking Lot, a haven where animals are rescued from shelters that would otherwise be eutanized. There's a solid lineup, and since it's Beer Week, why not save animals while having some cold local brews?
