There are so many great events, it kinda makes me wish this was our extended weekend, but I suppose I'll deal with the Mondays when they inevitably set in. At Bar Pink tonight, legendary performer Peter Case takes the stage, and he'll be joined by Dead Rock West, featuring former San Diegan Frank Lee Drennan who was the frontman of one of my all-time favorite local acts, Loam. The Casbah will once again host the ladies of Baby Bushka, who will be performing the songs of Kate Bush, and Ceramic Animal play the Voodoo Room at the House of Blues. Of special note, Tim Spann was a longtime friend of the San Diego music scene and passed suddenly last month. The Casbah will be alive with his spirit as friends and fans alike come out at 2 p.m. to celebrate his life with music and memories.
