Sounds Like San Diego: February 23

L.A.'s Allah-Las headline a Casbah show Saturday that also features some great local acts

If you're into garage-y sounds, look no further than Saturday's show at the Casbah. LA's Allah-Las will headline a stellar lineup that also features Tomorrow's Tulips and local favorites Barbarian on the mainstage, while another fave, New Mexico, jams it out in the Atari Lounge between sets. You can bet that on this Saturday night, the bands will be purging their weekday angst, so don't forget your earplugs. While the Casbah lineup has garage-pop leanings, for your more garage-punk leanings, check out the matinee show at Tower Bar with several bands, including Wha? -- featuring our own SoundDiego photographer David Robles -- as well as Fast Crowd favorites like Sunnyside and the all girl Gorilla Biscuits tribute, Girl-illa Biscuits. Of course, as always there are great shows all over San Diego so get out and do your soul some good.
