Sounds Like San Diego: February 8

Allah-Las headline a sold-out show at the Belly Up Thursday

When I heard that a European date of the Allah-Las tour was canceled because of threats to the venue, I guess I was really dense and had to have it explained that the name could be offensive to some, just like Christ Killer might be offensive to others. So perhaps they could've done a better job there, but tonght's sold-out Belly Up show just proves most people will take it with a grain of salt and can still love the band (read the SoundDiego interview with them here). If you have tickets, be sure to get there early for the very lovely Jenny O. Another hot ticket in town tonight is Walk the Moon at House of Blues. Wear your neon headbands and be ready to dance to their peppy synth-pop jams. Around town, Bar Pink hosts a show with some greats, Casbah hosts Open Oscillator, and Don Diablo performs at the Observatory.
