Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 22

King Tuff kicks off the first of his two nights at the Casbah Friday

The weather has been rather extreme by San Diego standards, but don't let that keep you from getting out because there are some great shows tonight. It's gonna get weird at the Casbah for the super cool King Tuff who returns for the first of two nights. At the Observatory North Park, the beautiful Aurora takes the stage and you should definitely get there early enough to catch Talos. The Mother Hips return to the Belly Up, and I haven't heard any rumors, but I'd bet money that the special guest at Gregory Page's Lestat's show is Steve Poltz before they play Belly Up on Saturday. It's gonna be a good night all over town, so you should definitely live it up.
