Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 17

The Donkeys, Anthony Green, the Infamous Stringdusters and more top Thursday's live-music action in SD

Here's a bit of advice: When you're out a show or a bar and you wanna say hi to your pals or buddies, maybe stick to an elbow bump or a hug because there are some nasty bugs going around and you don't wanna get it from something as innocuous as a handshake or a high five. And you definitely don't want to get sick when there are so many great shows. Like tonight at the Casbah, it's the return of local faves the Donkeys. Along with the Blank Tapes and Bitchin' Summer, maybe the shimmery sunny tunes can give you some respite from the gloomy weather of late. Meanwhile, Anthony Green plays a second sold-out night at Soda Bar, Grammy-winners the Infamous Stringdusters bring bluegrass to the Belly Up, and DJ Stoykavich (of Quel Bordel) spins tunes at Bar Pink.
