Sounds Like San Diego: January 31

Prawn head up your Wednesday night live-music options to get you over the hump

When you think of New Jersey rock, you probably go straight to Bon Jovi or Springsteen, but fortunately Prawn is here to let you know that elements of punk, hardcore, emo, and post-rock can all be weaved together to create a great song and the notable songs of "Run." Catch these Jersey boys (c'mon, I had to!) tonight at Soda Bar. At the Casbah, the third night of Pinback is sold out, but if you've got a ticket, get there early for new local supergroup the Color Forty Nine combining the talents of Matt Resovich, John Meeks, Jason Hooper and Phil Beaumont. '70s classics will be a treat at Belly Up as Tower of Power play a sold-out show, and the Hazytones take the stage at the Merrow.
