Sounds Like San Diego: January 26

The Donkeys, hometown curators of chill, head into the Casbah Thursday

I told you this week was getting good! Tonight, our friends and ever-touring friends the Donkeys pop into the Casbah for their first appearance of 2017. If you don't follow along, despite San Diego being their hometown, you'll be hard-pressed to see these guys more than a few times a year, so don't miss out. Meanwhile, the Show Ponies rock out at Soda Bar, Lemuria hopes to pack in the Hideout, and Mickey Avalon brings a big fat dance party to the Holding Company so you can flash back to the early oughts. There's gonna be a ton of fun everywhere tonight, so get out and get some.
