Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 20

There are some artists I have grown attached to. From the very first Kopecky Family Band show in San Diego, the warmth the band exudes through its music and in its offstage demeanor with other bands makes them hard not to love. The Kopecky Family Band is a nonstop touring machine, too, so they've been here enough to earn their heavy following. They're at the Casbah on Saturday, and while I think it's not to be missed, the truth is there are awesome shows all over town , inluding Epic Future Radness' Night 2 at the Til-Two, Jungle at the Belly Up, and the Carlsbad Music Festival, which are all worthy of your attention .
