Sounds Like San Diego: December 13

Sara Watkins heads up the Belly Up on a packed evening for live music in San Diego

Dan Chusid

In today's music climate, where it feels like there's some new genre invented every five minutes, sometimes you just want straight up rock & roll. Los Angelenos the Shelters are here to fill that rock & roll void in your heart, and while they might get comparisons to classic acts, seeing them at the Casbah tonight will give you faith in the future of rock. Meanwhile up at the Belly Up, Sara Watkins (of Nickel Creek) plays a homecoming show. Be sure to get there early for River Whyless, who recently blew the audience away when they opened for Blind Pilot. Around town, locals get together for an Elliott Smith tribute night at Blonde and the Gorgeous Boyscouts lead a local lineup at the Merrow.
