Sounds Like San Diego: January 11

La Santa Cecilia head up an eclectic Wednesday night of live music in San Diego

Apparently San Diego is about to be oppressed by another big storm, but don't make excuses to stay in tonight because there is some solid music to enjoy all over town. At the Casbah, LA blues-rockers Dorothy make an appearance with the Georgia Flood while folky singer-songwriter Dar Williams plays a 20-year anniversary tour of "Mortal City." Soda Bar hosts an evening with County Lips -- self-described as "Seattle's party country" band -- while our local friends get together for another Grand Ole Office at the Office. The big show of the night, however, is La Santa Cecilia who were originally scheduled to play at Symphony Hall but probably realized the Music Box would be more appropriate to allow their audience to fully immerse in their music, dance, and bounce the band's energy right back to them.
