Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 24

If you're going to see Albert Hammond, Jr., expect a masterful solo performance, not the Strokes

If you're going to see Albert Hammond, Jr. and hoping he'll play some of your favorite Strokes songs, you can just surrender the fantasy because it isn't gonna happen. Still, the talented guitarist and singer has been doing the solo band thing for a few years now and is a master performer who delivers a solid show. Be sure to catch openers In the Valley Below, who have been to San Diego a few times and are excellent as well. Meanwhile, female-fronted Brooklyn psych-pop act Crumb play a sold out show at the Irenic, the sunny Private Island play Soda Bar, and locals Mdrn Hstry take the stage at the Casbah.
