Sometimes it's unfortunate that booking agents can't just work together. Like Nick Cave returning to San Diego is a big deal, but Ron Gallo and White Reaper, while a great show on its own, could've been great options to open for Cave, too. Either way, I'm not here to play fantasy world, so Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are playing tonight at the San Diego Civic Theatre, and if the steep price of tickets has you down, Soda Bar is a pretty good back-up plan. At the Casbah, Chula Vista dream-pop act Hawk Auburn play Anti-Monday League, and experimental locals Jovias play the Merrow. If you're in the mood for the '90s, Bell Biv Devoe bring "poison" to the first of three nights at Sycuan Casino.
