Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 2

Old 97's bring their Holiday Extravaganza to the Belly Up

Old 97s by Will Byington

I am all-in this holiday season. The only problem is that there are so many great and festive events that it's impossible to make all of them. Tonight, for example, the Old 97's bring their Holiday Extravaganza to the Belly Up, including opening sets with Rhett Miller and DIY punk rock magician Caseymagic. But then there's also our friend Low Volts, who's playing at Bar Pink's annual Holiday Prom. It's super fun, everyone dresses up in cocktail attire and the donated canned food drive and raffle ticket sales benefit Mama's Kitchen. Of course, there are non-Holiday events, too, like Tropa Magica playing at Soda Bar or Western Settings, who are not only playing but also shooting a music video at Ken Club. There's a lot to do this Sunday night, so it'll be easy to have some fun tonight.
