Sounds Like San Diego: June 14

On Thursday night, Har Mar Superstar plays the songs of Sam Cooke at the Casbah

I think everyone just wants to be on the West Coast these days, because we sure are being consistently entertained by many amazing touring artists. Chad Valley returns to San Diego with a show at Soda Bar, so you should expect a full house, and you might want to get your tickets early to catch him. Meanwhile, we've seen Har Mar Superstar at the Casbah and other spots many times over the past couple of decades. We've seen him sweating in tighty whities with a satin cape, fully clothed with his indie-rock band and everything in between. Tonight, he plays the songs of Sam Cooke, and I can't be sure if he plays them straight to show he's not always clowning around, or it could be a full-on lounge act. I just don't know, but you can be sure I will be there to find out. Around town, Poor play Whistle Stop, Barenaked Ladies are at the San Diego County Fair and Daytrip headline the Merrow.
