Sounds Like San Diego: October 31

TR/ST headlines the Observatory while a myriad of venues around town host tribute nights

I don't really know who started this whole tribute band Halloween thing, but I gotta say, from someone who isn't a fan of the holiday, I'll take good, solid musicians getting together to play tribute to legendary bands. The problem is that it's happening all over now, so you're gonna have to choose between Whistle Stop, Space, Blonde, Pour House and other local venues to get in on the fun. We also have some solid 'normal' shows if you just wanna stick to the music. At Soda Bar, Old Man Wizard keep it dark and heavy while the Observatory North Park fills with the electronic vibes of TR/ST. The Adicts always bring the weird to any live show -- expect that turned up at House of Blues -- or head to a ska party at the Ken Club. So much fun stuff to do long after the trick-or-treaters have come to snatch all the candy you were hoping to hoard.
