Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 6

The Buttertones, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Irradio, Castle and more head up your stormy Thursday concert options

The Buttertones 8.26.17 screengrab3

Remember when I told you this weekend was fire? Since it's gonna be stormy anyway, why not kick it off early and get a jump on the weekend warriors? Tonight at the Belly Up, you can get festive with Squirrel Nut Zippers and their Holiday Caravan or head to the Casbah for the long-awaited return of Irradio and Dewey Defeats Truman. The Slackers shake things up at House of Blues and Con-tact has been getting all the attention lately, so catch 'em while you can at Soda Bar. There are great shows all the way down the list tonight, but if you're feeling the holiday vibes, you can probably catch me in an ugly Christmas sweater at the Office for their annual Murray Christmas Party. Whatever you choose, be safe on the roads and have yourself a most excellent night.
