Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 22

Dirty Sweet come out of hiatus to spread a little holiday cheer

It's been a super great month leading up to Christmas, and if you're still in town, things get really good tonight. At the Casbah, catch the return of Dirty Sweet, who've come out of hiatus but are still keeping their shows to a minimum, so you've got to catch them when you can. Meanwhile, the Slabatory celebrates their contributions to local music with a gathering at Soda Bar, Bar Pink welcomes the return of Martin and the Big Nativity Scene, and the Downs Family bring their one-of-a-kind flair to Black Cat Bar in City Heights.
