Sounds Like San Diego: November 12

Built to Spill headline the first of three nights at the Casbah Tuesday

It always bums me out a little bit when bands play in unexpected places, because it feels like the word is a little bit harder to get out. Which is maybe the point, but let's say Built to Spill was doing three nights in a row at a tiny venue like the Casbah, but the last time you saw them was at the Observatory North Park, so maybe it wasn't ever on your radar that they'd play such a small room this deep into their career, and even though the tickets were on sale for many months, they only sold out recently but people are still crying because they didn't get tickets. So maybe next time, don't be that guy. All of our small and large venues have weekly newsletters and let's face it, they're not gonna send you a carrier pidgeon to let you know about the shows you want to see. Don't be that person that misses out. Same goes for Sleater-Kinney. Same for a lot of shows that have been selling out lately. We're here for you, but only you can make the effort to really be in the know.
