Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 20

Hip-hop returns on Tuesday with DJ Artistic and Tramlife's Battle Bots at Casbah

Brian Bostrom

Do you think that San Diego is a hip-hop town? Because honestly, I hadn't really ever seen any great emergence of the genre, and then DJ Artistic and Tramlife put together the Battle Bots Tuesdays at the Casbah, and suddenly it felt like even if the genre isn't taking over, at least people in this town are paying closer attention to it. Maybe there was something else to change the tide, but whatever the case, head down to the Casbah Tuesday night to catch another Beat Battle -- or maybe even enter yourself. Meanwhile, it's Tiki Tuesday at Bar Pink, while Graham Nancarrow gets a little country at Brick by Brick, and the Merrow hosts three up-and-coming locals for a chill Tuesday night in San Diego.
