Surreality Bites

Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 18, 2019:

Stephanie Brown Surrealistics screengrab

Wednesday night offers a grab bag of treats. If you're feeling the instrumental vibe, Brokeback will meet your needs with their textured and layered sounds while locals Amerikan Bear and the Surrealistics bring a retro psyche vibe to the Casbah. Venice has once again sold out their popular annual Christmas show at the Belly Up, and Joykill -- with their dark and moody interwoven vocals and melodies -- defies what you think of when you hear people talk about folk rock. You can catch their free show at Whistle Stop. Around town, Bar Pink hosts a Gothic night, and emo DJs go head-to-head at the Office.
