Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 10


There are a ton of great shows on Thursday, including Get Up Kids 20th Anniversary at the Observatory, the New Kinetics at Til-Two and the Steepwater Band from Chicago at Soda Bar, to name just a few, but I have to say that I've been excited about Johnette Napolitano at the Casbah ever since I heard the show announced. I remember picking up a Concrete Blonde album -- Still In Hollywood -- which was a compilation of B-Sides, live songs and outtakes, and I completely it wore out listening to "Joey" (even though they always claimed that CDs are indestructible). I loved the album, but as a teenage girl, that song killed me, even without real context to the actual meaning of the song. Of course, Concrete Blonde had a ton of records leading up to that point and after, and with so many women of rock coming out to speak honestly about the challenges of the music industry back then, I'm just grateful when those legends persevere to share their craft.
