Sounds Like San Diego: May 25

Evan Dando is here with a sold-out Lemonheads show at the Casbah

Evan Dando 7.8 screengrab
I want to start off letting you know that the White Buffalo show has been postponed due to illness. If you had a ticket, however, you can still go to the free show tonight with L.A. Edwards, who was set to open both nights. Meanwhile, the Lemonheads are playing a sold out show at the Casbah, and I'd be devastated if Evan Dando cancelled. Mine is a lifelong love of their music, and judging by setlists of other dates of this tour, they're playing all the faves we want to hear. You've probably seen posts over the years of Through Being Cool emo nights at Blonde and other establishments, and tonight, they've got quite a lineup at the Irenic. Our friends Little Hurricane are in town for Arts & Amps at Karl Strauss, a sure sign that summer is right around the corner, and Sloppy Seconds bring old-school punk to Soda Bar. It is gonna be a fire night, and I'm totally and completely on board for it.
