Sounds Like San Diego: December 26

Mr. Tube & the Flying Objects head up a fine night of post-Christmas live music

With Christmas falling on a Friday this year, you can be sure of one thing tonight -- the weekend warriors will be out in full force. With that in mind, be extra conscientious on the roadways and designate a driver, and perhaps catch a show where you're less likely to encounter amateur-hour behavior. At the Casbah, the Blasters bring rock, while RJ gets down at the Observatory. You can't go wrong with Mr. Tube & the Flying Objects at Soda Bar, B-Side Players by the beach at Winston's, or Batlords at the Ken Club. There are plenty of fun shows tonight to make up for missing a Friday on the town in usual fashion.
