Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 5

Take in the local scene at Casbah with Taken by Canadians or go sold-out for Trombone Shorty at Belly Up


Was Monday back to work as hard for everyone else as it was for me? Hopefully Tuesday is less painful, and by nightfall, we can ease back into our music week. The Casbah is where it's at tonight, with Oceanside's Taken by Canadians headlining the night. They have an interesting sound for sure, though I'm not sure they fit the "freak-folk" label they claim. Back at the Belly Up, Trombone Shorty brings the party once again; however, this one is also sold out. Soda Bar hosts the rap skills of Giant Gorilla Dog Thing, and Ingrid and friends celebrate the late Jim Croce's birthday at Croce's Park West.
