Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 21

Legend and goddess Kim Gordon brings experimental electric guitar to Casbah

Let's face it. Kim Gordon is a legend and goddess, but we will always think of her in Sonic Youth. Even though Body/Head has been around for more than five years, it's hard to separate her from her past. So don't. It's okay to be nostalgic for the old stuff while also embracing the new, like Body/Head, who are playing at the Casbah tonight. Meanwhile, Soda Bar hosts the all-female Judas Priestess, and LA's post-punk Glaare play at Blonde.
