Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 22

Bad Religion plays during the day at Waterfront Park

I've had the good fortune of seeing Greg Graffin perform solo at the Casbah and hearing him keynote speak at San Diego Music Thing, but it's been more than a couple of decades since I've seen Bad Religion live, which is why I couldn't be more excited about Ye Scallywag at the Waterfront Park. When the show was announced, the teenager inside me did a couple of backflips, and now the day is here. Be warned, however, that this is an early day festival, and the whole thing will be over by around 7 p.m., so plan accordingly. By nightfall, be ready for more great music, like up-and-coming alt-rockers The Moth and the Flame at Soda Bar or Glass Elf at Bar Pink. Casbah welcomes back Los Angeles' touring version of the very popular Emo Night and Wild Child throw down at the Belly Up. One show of note -- the Niykee Heaton show has been moved from the Observatory to the Irenic (just a couple of blocks away). All tickets will be honored at the new venue. See you in the pit!
