Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 11



    There are plenty of shows around San Diego to keep you entertained on Thursday. For one, punk icons GBH perform at the Hideout after having to cancel their original Casbah date due to visa issues. (If you had tickets, they were already refunded, so you have to buy new ones). Meanwhile, Hot Snakes play their second night in a row, this time to a sold out 21+ crowd at the Casbah. Even with those great shows, my pick is definitely Waters at Soda Bar. This indie band has been through San Diego three or four times now, and singer Van Pierszalowski is one of the nicest guys in music. Perhaps you were familiar with his former Bay Area band, Port O'Brien. Waters' lineup is a little more rockin, but he's still just as nice, and as a frontman, he's even more charismatic and not quite as shy onstage as he used to be. If you love indie, this is easily your pick for the night.
