Sounds Like San Diego: July 13

Matthew Molarius and his band Transfer return to their hometown for a Casbah show

As I warned you Friday, there's so much going on this weekend that you might find it a little bit overwhelming, but I'm going to make just one recommendation for Saturday, and you can roll with it or see the listings for something that better suits your tastes: I'm rolling with Transfer. For years this band has been burning up the San Diego scene, and after touring all over the U.S. and Europe, they're back at the Casbah for what will surely be an amazing night of new music plus their well loved favorites. It feels like forever since they've played in town, and with Blackout Party, Flaggs and the Palace Ballroom as support, this is the best all-around plan for your Saturday night.
