Sounds Like San Diego: February 28

The Thurston Moore Group headline the Casbah Wednesday

It wasn't too long ago that Kim Gordon played the Casbah, and now her former Sonic Youth counterpart (and ex), Thurston Moore, comes to the stage with his aptly named Thurston Moore Group. I'm sure we can all mind our own beeswax on the messy tales of their dissolution and acknowledge the role they both play in music's past, present, and future. Meanwhile, Trombone Shorty calls New Breed Brass Band "the future of New Orleans music," and tonight they appear at UCSD's Price Center. If you're into jam bands, check Spafford at Belly Up, or get your indie fix with I the Victor at Soda Bar. For musicians looking for new opportunities, tonight is a rock lotto drawing at Bar Pink with last month's creations performing onstage.
