Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 12

Family Photo

There are so many good shows on Saturday that I don't even know where to start. David Wax Museum brings their signature "Mexo-American" music to Soda Bar, and the Observatory goes post-hardcore with Dance Gavin Dance. One of my favorite locals, Ditches, play at the Hideout, and Soda Bar welcomes the Maine to the Irenic. The Soaks are back from tour and play at the Che Cafe, and you can expect a raucous night at Til-Two Club. Still, Casbah is where it's at, with Quebecois indie rockers the Dears and Dear Boy. There are great shows all over town, so don't let the chilly weather deter your good times with live music.
