Sounds Like San Diego: October 2



    The Casbah is gonna be crowded tonight ... and that's just counting the bands. With upward of 30 members, Mucca Pazza formed as an outlet to express high school marching band nostalgia, but the Chicago band is far beyond a marching band, describing themselves as a "circus-punk marching band." Don't expect this show to be confined to the stage, but do expect to live in a world where the band geeks rule the roost, even if just for one night. The local acts Burning of Rome and Martian Horses open the night.
