Sounds Like San Diego: August 18, 2016

Beware of Darkness pummel Casbah while tons of other live music pops off around town

Beware of Darkness

As we inch toward the weekend, there are plenty of musical treats on tonight's menu. Beware of Darkness and Pleasure Fix bring a unique back-to-back brand of rock to the Casbah, while the indie-folk music of Globelamp permeates the Che Cafe. At Soda Bar, you can catch Detroit's punk/funk outfit Downtown Brown and Australia's the Living End, also in the punk game, are at House of Blues. I have to say that "The Last Waltz" is one of my favorite concert films of all time, so the Belly Up is probably going to be amazing with tonight's show with the Weight, featuring members of the Band and members of the Levon Helm band. After everything's said and done, sneak over to Blonde's soft opening with a DJ set from Globelamp.
