Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 14

Grant-Lee Phillips warms up Brick 15

Whether you know Grant-Lee Phillips from his '90s rock band Grant Lee Buffalo, as the wandering troubadour from "Gilmore Girls," or as the amazing singer-songwriter he's been for the past few decades, you should be very excited about the prospect of seeing him tonight at Brick 15. The small venue should easily recreate the vibe he works so hard to cultivate at places like Largo in Los Angeles. It's been a while since he's been down this way, so make your best effort to catch him when you can. Meanwhile, apparently legendary Scot, Midge Ure, must've had a great time at the Casbah last year, because he's back tonight with Warsaw, a newish local act featuring members of Ilya. Around town, Soda Bar has Just in Case headlining while Sublime with Rome hit their second night at House of Blues.
