Casbah or Soda Bar?

Personally I can't decide if tonight is a Casbah night or a Soda Bar night. On the one hand, you have some great San Diego rock bands and in Irradio, one that doesn't play too often, but on the other hand, Dudes haven't played much locally in awhile either, so it's going to be a tough call. I have friends who are excited about Leftover Salmon up at the Belly Up, and Carl Durant leads a solid acoustic lineup at Lestat's, so there are certainly options for all tastes. Maybe I'll venture to the wild side and blow all of them off to see the Screamin Yeehaws over at the Shakedown where the drinks are always cheap and will allow you to have fun without spending a lot of dough. Yes, now that I say it, that sounds like the best plan of all.
