Sounds Like San Diego: June 18

B-Side Players

You might just want to take Friday off from work with the fun lineup coming your way on Thursday. The Belly Up hosts their daytime festival at the San Diego County Fair, and by night Gregg Allman takes to the Grandstand Stage (read our interview with Allman HERE). Meanwhile, our boys in Dead Feather Moon lead a solid local lineup at the Belly Up itself, and Missouri's the Life and Times headline the freshly-painted Casbah. Singer/songwriter Griffin House performs at Soda Bar, and rock & roll legends George Thorogood & the Destroyers return to Humphrey's By the Bay with guests Brian Setzer for their Rockabilly Riot. Elsewhere, the Slackers rock out at the Observatory, and our friend Matt Strachota is celebrated with a birthday show at Sycamore Den. Lots to do and plenty to choose from.
