Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 25

Rosemary Bystrak

Looking at Saturday's listings is quite overwhelming. There are so many shows to choose from, though I suppose Of Montreal being sold out at the Irenic at least eliminates or confirms one option for a few hundred people. The Casbah hosts Smile and Uncle Joe's Big Ol Driver (UJBOD) to continue the 25-year celebration with amazing rock & roll. Soda Bar has up-and-coming indie outfit Wooden Shjips, while the Griffin hosts Islands, another band making waves in the blogosphere. One particular show of note to day is starting at 6 p.m. at Broke Girls Coffee Bar in Normal Heights, where several bands with members mostly in the 18-20 year-old age range will perform. It's critical that those of us in the local music scene check out and support the next wave of music to see our city continue to flourish with a vibrant music scene.
