Sounds Like San Diego: May 21

A little over a month ago, outlaw country musician Wayne "The Train" Hancock was in a motorcycle crash, leaving him injured, with broken ribs and a punctured lung, forcing him to cancel his current tour, including a stop on Wednesday at the Casbah. Fortunately, some great local support acts were booked, and the Casbah still reason has reason enougt to put on your cowboy boots and enjoy some local countrified acts. I imagine there's going to be a lot of Jack flowing. Meanwhile, the Unlikely Candidates rock Soda Bar, Shai Halud perform at Che Cafe, and Katchafire plays the first in a run at the Belly Up.
