Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 16

Schizophonics play Casbah after European tour with Rocket From the Crypt

One might think that it's the middle of December, so surely this could be the last Schizophonics show of the year, but I'm sure they'll find a way to fit in a few more. Still, it's a Saturday night, they're at the Casbah where they're most at home, and they're fresh back from a jaunt in Europe with Rocket From the Crypt. Around town, Cake play a second sold-out night at the Observatory, electronic producer Pierce Fulton gigs at Soda bar and local black metal act Mystic Ritual play Tower Bar.
