Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 16

Does anyone think it's a strange coincidence that on the same night that Andy Rourke of the Smiths is doing a DJ set at the Hideout, Sweet & Tender Hooligans are playing a sold-out show at the Casbah? Well, maybe it is just a coincidence, but the serendipity is beautiful. Saturday is actually a throwback night all over the place, with Tower of Power at the Belly Up, Deadbolt at Til-Two, and Salt-n-Pepa at Sycuan Casino. If you're looking for a great local lineup, Soda Bar has your best bet, with the Lulls, Bit Maps and Lost Pets, but I'm pretty sure wherever you might end  up, you'll find yourself a good time.
