Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 18

For the Sender returns to the Belly Up Tuesday with a jam-packed cadre of all-star performers

This week is going to have some really exciting and fun shows although they might be more sparse than usual. That's okay, though, because you only need one to make a great night. Tonight, For the Sender returns to the Belly Up with all of our favorite players, like Jon Foreman of Switchfoot, and Sara and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek. Alex Woodard and Molly Jenson, of course, will be there, too, plus many more guests and surprises. These nights are really intimate and interesting and might just be what you're looking for. Around town, Dublin Mob hosts their annual Christmas party at the Casbah, though the event is free for anyone who wants to attend, Vera Sola play Soda Bar, and Ministry is at House of Blues.
