Sounds Like San Diego: January 17

Reginald Hardwick, NBC 5 News

If last night wasn't enough to whet your whistle, tonight is going to go down in the history books, as Andy Rourke of the Smiths takes to the decks at the Hideout. It isn't exactly a "live music" performance, but with our own Robin Roth joining him, this is certainly the party to be at tonight. Of course, there are plenty of live shows to rock your night too. At the Casbah, catch Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds, or go retro punk with the Dickies at Soda Bar. Jackson Price and his band perform at Seven Grand for their CD release, and Powerman 5000 takes over Brick By Brick. Bottom line: There are lots of fun things to keep you going this Saturday night.
