Sounds Like San Diego: August 2

Celebrate 30 years of Supersuckers at Casbah Thursday

Loudspeaker wasn't the only 30th anniversary celebration this week. Tonight at the Casbah, join the Supersuckers as they tour to celebrate three decades of raising rock & roll mayhem. Apparently on this tour, they'll be playing a country set as well as their "Smoke of Hell" (1992) and "La Mano Cornuda" (1994) albums in their entirety and more. Meanwhile, the Belly Up welcomes the return of Femi Kuti, who will definitely make some bodies move. Wimps bring punk to Soda Bar, and dream pop is well-represented with Tears on Tape at Bar Pink and Vansire at the Voodoo Room.
