Sounds Like San Diego: May 27


Tonight kicks off a great weekend of music, so even if you missed your chance to get tickets to see Transfer at the Casbah, there are several great options all over town. Up at the Belly Up, Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli brings the Twilight Singers along with one of my personal favorites, Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. Soda Bar has the Aussie duo An Horse, Tower Bar has local noisemakers Ale Mania, and Ruby Room has Audible Mainframe. Just save some energy because this weekend is gonna be really demanding with sun, fun, and incredible music.
