Sounds Like San Diego: November 30

Lee Fields & the Expressions bring the house down at the Belly Up tonight

We're already half way through the week and the music just keeps us moving along. Tonight, Brazilian musician Seu Jorge -- best known stateside for his soundtrack to "The Life Aquatic" -- brings the Portuguese versions of Bowie classics that were so amazing in the film live to Balboa Theatre for a sold-out show. If you didn't grab tickets, fret not, as you can head to the Belly Up for soul legend Lee Fields and his backing band the Expressions (read the SoundDiego interview with Lee Fields here). Since his first record in 1969, the singer has been moving audiences and is one of the last soul greats. Meanwhile, the Casbah hosts Doyle Bramhall II, a prolific guitarist, producer, and songwriter who is probably best known for his work with Eric Clapton. Around town, Whitehorse is at Soda Bar, Modern Me plays the Holding Company, and your favorite local musicians gather at the Office for Metallica Under Cover.
