Sounds Like San Diego: August 23

It's a big Sunday in San Diego, as the hot ticket in town is for the sold-out Savages show at the Casbah. The ladies of the band had a huge debut in 2013 and the show sold out in a heartbeat, so no doubt there will be a gaggle of people begging for entry. Around town, however, there are plenty of shows to appeal to the music fan, including blues-rocker Patrick Sweany at Soda Bar, nine-time Grammy-winner Natalie Cole returns to Summer Pops at the Embarcadero, and Grampadrew joins up with other Flim Flam Revue artists Matthew Strachota and Gregory Michael Thielmann at Sycamore Den. For an extra special fun night, check out Vaud and the Villains at Belly Up.
