The clock is ticking closer to the holidays, but it's important to escape the hustle and bustle and perhaps enjoy a cocktail with your peers. Tonight, LA punk legends X kick off four nights at the Casbah to celebrate 40 years together, and the Dandy Warhols let their freak flags fly as they return to the Belly Up (read the SoundDiego interview with the band here). Head Wound City and the Blind Shake play a ticketed benefit for the Center at Bar Pink and singer-songwriter Matt Nakoa plays Brick 15. If you can't really decide, head to Soda Bar where NOLA indie-rockers Royal Teeth will satisfy your aural desires, while Kolars will visually please as tap-dancing percussionist Lauren dazzles on the bass drum.
