Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 17

San Diego nights have been chilly, but Thursday's shows are definitely hot. While Macy Gray at the Belly Up and the Bronx at the Casbah are both already sold out, there's no reason you can't get out to another show. For starters, the former San Diegans of the Crocodiles play a hometown show at the Hideout, which in and of itself is a big deal, but when you add Ghostface Killah at the Observatory and Sam Outlaw at Soda Bar to the mix, you've got some big decisions to make. If you're on a tight budget this time of year, head down to theMusic Box for the free Rock 105.3 Loud & Local end of year spotlight show.
