Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 9

Rosemary Bystrak

If this week is evidence of the year to come, then we are shaping up for an amazing 2016. Early this afternoon, swing by the Whistle Stop for the first Flim-Flam Revue, with such musicians as Mike Pope and Matthew Strachota, and host Grampa Drew. By evening, Tool are in town -- if you were lucky enough to score tickets -- but if not, your best bet is with the Redwoods Revue at the Casbah, with the best female voices of our city: Rebecca Jade, Birdy Bardot, Shelbi Bennett and Dani Bell. Around town, it's tribute night at Soda Bar, with Black Sabbitch and GayC/DC, and over at House of Blues, Queen Nation and the Band That Fell to Earth will perform.
