Sounds Like San Diego: June 20

Touring slows over summer, but talent stays red hot

I'm always surprised that touring seems to slow down so much during the summer. These crazy bands would rather drive from town to town in the winter? It defies logic. But even though we're in a slowing trend of the music season, we're not completely abandoned. Tonight, you can catch the silky, sexy music of Federico Aubele, who sometimes leans more acoustic and other times more electronic, but he's always incredible, and he's back at the Casbah for what seems to be an annual trek. Meanwhile, Lee Scratch Perry has been at it for decades and he just seems to be one of those legends who will tour until he can't, and that's what makes his Belly Up visits so special. Not a lot of choices but a couple of really solid ones if you need to get out of the house this Monday night.
