Keep the nostalgia going with the Ataris at Casbah

The Ataris

San Diego has been steeped in nostalgia, and tonight you can keep it going with the Ataris as they play the Casbah. The pop-punk heroes have been the inspiration of many an emo-night singalong with the popularity of such nights resurging and reminding us of a different life around the turn of the century. If you'd rather leave the past behind and are willing to give new music a chance, Soda Bar might be the spot for you tonight. Pip Blom are from the Netherlands, and their sweet indie rock is definitely worthy of a listen. Around town, things are starting to slow down before the holidays, but you can always catch Electric Waste Band at Winston's, Leonid & Friends covering Chicago at Belly Up and Mexico's El Shirota at Space.
