Sounds Like San Diego: April 15

If you scored a ticket to Kero Kero Bonito's first sold out night at the Casbah this week, don't forget your flamingos

The first time I saw Kero Kero Bonito (KKB) live, I was sure the room would be mostly empty. I guess I thought that I'd stumbled on something people hadn't heard before, something that was getting some satellite play but no love from radio. That's when I learned to never underestimate good music. I don't know how everyone else discovered KKB, but somehow they did, and I danced along to all the bouncy, catchy music with everyone as she sang in English and rapped in Japanese. It's no surprise to me that a few years later, the band has sold out not one, but two nights at the Casbah. If you're one of the people who scored a ticket, don't forget your flamingos. Speaking of sold out, French multi-instrumentalist and performer FKJ plays to a standing crowd at Humphreys. Around town, Portland rockers Summer Cannibals play Soda Bar, Julia Sage & the Bad Hombres encourage you to drink tequila with a free sponsored show from Corralejo and Billy Watson gets the room swinging at Humphreys Backstage Lounge.
