the Donkeys Blurb

Let's just agree that after this week, the weekend couldn't come any faster. Friday's big awesome show is at the Casbah, with the Donkeys and a host of three great support acts. Their shows always sell out, so if you don't buy tickets in advance, you should be sure to arrive at the Casbah relatively early to be sure you get in. That isn't the only show however, as locals Pierce The Veil step up their game. They've outgrown Soma and tonight will perform at Viejas Arena and it will be an epic night. Around town, catch Moon Hootch at Soda Bar, Euphoria Brass Band parties up at Seven Grand, and Cathryn Beeks hosts a massive All Access at House of Blues with a host of local acts.
