Sounds Like San Diego: October 22

Got the early-week blues? Head out and catch a great show -- there's plenty of 'em to go around Tuesday

Most of the time, I can look at a night's listings and feel like I'm pretty in-the-know and have a grasp on music and an overall idea of who is touring or which locals are playing live. But sometimes there are nights like tonight, where I have to do a little digging and spend some time listening in order to recommend the goods to you. But when I looked up Mephiskapheles, I was kinda hooked. The description more or less said they're a ska band from New York who mockingly sing songs about Satan. I mean, if that doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what to tell ya. Skank your way to the Casbah to see what they're all about. Meanwhile, the sweet little vulnerable indie vibes of the Speed of Sound in Seawater might remind you of early Bright Eyes or Moldy Peaches but then the tempo picks up and you bop your head a bit and think maybe this is the show for you at Soda Bar. Then again, Pyles is at the Merrow, and that's always a good time, so suddenly you have some decisions to make.
