Sounds Like San Diego: June 26

Casbah honors the birthday of Ben the doorman with a free show on Wednesday

The Casbah

If you've ever been to the Casbah, chances are you've encountered the cranky but lovable doorman, Ben Heynes. He's just as much a mainstay as the venue's stainless steel flames, the crescent and star and the old velvet devil hanging behind the soundboard. The Casbah honors his birthday with sets from some of San Diego's finest: Sleep Lady, Lord Howler, and Wha? The best part? The show is free, so drop by after dinner and hang out. If you lean toward hip-hop and beats, catch another free show over at Soda Bar for this month's edition of Commune. Either way, it's easy on your wallet.
