Sounds Like San Diego: March 22

The Black Lips return to San Diego Saturday, this time for a two-night run at the Casbah

You might recall that the Black Lips performed at the Hard Rock Hotel's 207 late last summer. The show was very well attended but unfortunately didn't last past three songs because of security's reaction to the zealous crowd. The Lips are back this weekend for a two-night stand at the Casbah, where the security certainly knows what to expect from the band and its audience. Saturday's show is sold out and is certain to be a great time for those lucky ticketholders, but there are still some tickets for Sunday night's set. Around town, Pennywise perform for the second night in a row with their full original lineup, Big Bad Buffalo headline the Che Cafe, and Stevie & the Hi-Stax lead the dance party at  Bar Pink.
