Sounds Like San Diego: January 24

Behind the Wagon bring the whiskey-soaked twang blues to Soda Bar

Oh, glorious Saturday night, where have you been all week? Tonight you can certainly enjoy some awesome music. In fact, there are so many great shows it is challenging to choose: Brick By Brick offers a solid lineup of whisky swilling rock while the Observatory North Park goes steampunk tonight with Steam Powered Giraffe. Big Head Todd & the Monsters bring their college rock sound to Belly Up and Loons throwback to the psychedelic '60s at Bar Pink. You can be sure old Casbah friends will be remembering Bob Bennett (read our tribute to "Uncle Bob") tonight as the Cadillac Tramps return to the Casbah and Hideout hosts Helms Alee, which should be your "indie cred show of the week." Finally, things get dirty as Behind the Wagon rock out at Soda Bar, which could possibly kick off a whiskey shortage in City Heights.
