Sounds Like San Diego: August 29

Peter Frampton comes alive (again) at Harrah's Resort SoCal Wednesday

One of my all time favorite movies is "Reality Bites," a '90s flick in which Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke share a confusing are-they-or-aren't-they relationship and Ben Stiller enters the picture as a slick network executive. He and Leleina (Ryder's character) return home from a date and are parked in his convertible sipping Big Gulps as he explains why "Frampton Comes Alive" "like, totally changed [his] life." Tonight, Peter Frampton can, like, totally change your life as he plays at Harrah's Resort SoCal's Events Center. There are also plenty of shows in San Diego proper, including Moon Ensemble at Soda Bar, Lucy and La Mer at the Casbah, the Exploited at the Observatory North Park, or check out this month's installment of Undercover at the Office where locals pay tribute to New York Dolls and Johnny Thunders.
