Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 17

The super talented and super funny Ron Gallo joins Post Animal at Casbah on Sunday night

I know that sometimes Sunday nights are harder than other nights to get out. You might wanna just lounge around and get ready for the work week ahead. But tonight is definitely worthy of exception, because there are some super great shows tonight. At the Casbah, Ron Gallo and Post Animal co-headline. Gallo gave a superb show at Soda Bar a while back, and not only is he talented, but super funny, too. If you haven't had enough of Cancelled just yet, today's lineups at the Office and Bar Pink are stallar, punctuated by closing sets from Tiltwheel and Western Settings. If you want a good taste of local music, Local Brews, Local Grooves goes down at House of Blues, and though there's a cover, I think you can get free tickets from any of the bands, and like every President's Day weekend, the Worldbeat Center hosts Tribute to Reggae Legends.
