We are so proud of Tim Pyles and his Loudspeaker crew. The show featuring all local music has been running for 30 years, and all year long they've hosted shows and events to celebrate, with their final hurrah of 2018 happening tonight at the Casbah, and best of all, the event is free. What better way to spend the day before New Year's Eve than by not spending money on cover? Of course they've put together a great lineup and many hosts of past and present will be in attendance with a live broadcast. For those of you with lots of Christmas funds just waiting to be spent, John Legend plays the Civic Theatre. The Belly Up hosts the first of two sold out nights with Michael Franti, La Beat Cantina play Soda Bar and OMFG! have their second night at Pechanga Arena.
