Sounds Like San Diego: November 15

Java Joe's welcomes Frank Lee Drennen, Timothy Joseph and more to the stage Wednesday

I can't begin to tell you the number of Wednesdays I spent at the Ould Sod watching Frank Lee Drennen and Gregory Page as the Hatchett Brothers of trying to see Loam anytime I could. He's been a longtime resident of LA and his band Dead Rock West comes around every once in a while, but tonight he plays Java Joe's and it will be an extra special homecoming show. If you've been a multiple-decades-long supporter of local music, you're going to want to be there. Meanwhile, with "Stranger Things" on a full mission to bring back the '80s, you can expect all the former outcasts and weirdos to check out Gary Numan at the Observatory (read the SoundDiego interview with Numan here), Tijuana's San Pedro El Cortez plays the Casbah, and Fall Out Boy will ask their crowd to "Dance, Dance" at Viejas Arena.
