Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 13

Other Lives cast big names in the shadow on Tuesday

I just can't stop being amazed by all of these wonderful shows coming through town. I guess that's what happens as we get more venues and competition for big shows. Or maybe it's because bands aren't making music from online and digital plays so they have to be on the road to turn a profit. Whatever the case may be, we surely win. Tuesday we have the return of Alt-J, this time at the Open Air Theatre with one of my favorites opening, San Fermin. Meanwhile, and kind of shocking to a lot of people, Neil Young is appearing at RIMAC Arena at UCSD with Promise of the Real -- featuring Willie Nelson's kid Lukas -- as his backing band, and the amazing Jenny Lewis opening the show. All of that is great, but what I'm particularly excited about is the return of Other Lives. I fell in love with this band's music a few years ago when they played Soda Bar for the first time. I subsequently saw them at the Casbah and then actually traveled to see them -- once to Vegas and once to San Francisco. It has been too long since they've been here, but in the time they've been absent, they opened for Radiohead, relocated to Portland from Oklahoma and had some member changes. Their latest record is phenomenal, and I cannot wait to see this band Tuesday night at the Belly Up.
