Sounds Like San Diego: December 1

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood joins X, Sam Outlaw, Fat Nick and more in San Diego Friday

Philadelphia Police

It was a pretty quiet week for the most part, but the weekend is here and it's gonna get noisy. The Casbah hosts the second sold-out night of X and their 40 year anniversary, while Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson returns to San Diego with his Brotherhood at the Observatory. The Irenic hosts hip-hop with Fat Nick, Lil Peep and more; and Ken Club, Soda Bar, the Merrow, and the Hard Rock all have worthy shows, too. For old-time San Diegans, catch Shot Out Hoods at Brick By Brick or for newish talent on the scene, try the Goldettes at Black Cat.
