Sounds Like San Diego: January 19

There are certain bands and artists who, for whatever reason, just skip San Diego on their tours. Then there are others, like the Old 97's and their fearless leader, Rhett Miller, who make it a point to hit our market tour after tour.

This is certainly a win for us, but if you've never had the pleasure of seeing the band, go rent "The Breakup" with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, and see how their characters fought over pre-breakup tickets to see the Old 97's. While a fictional movie, the sentiment is very real. The band's shows are always amazing, with long sets to cover its extensive catalog of music. This is certainly a not-to-be-missed show.
