Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 10

Tom Morello plays at the House of Blues, and we can assure you, it's gonna rage

Lindsay Brice

Working in the music industry affords some pretty cool opportunities and sometimes some braggable moments for sure, but one of my favorite brushes with famous people was at Warped Tour several years ago. A friend of mine just started working for Tom Morello, and it happened that Warped Tour in San Diego was on his birthday, so me, my friend and several other band and crew people gathered around as he was presented with a birthday cake. It caught him off guard a little, so it was this little sweet moment and we all hung out and chatted as the cake was devoured. Just last week, everyone was going insane with news that Rage Against the Machine would be reuniting for Coachella, but I've kinda always been more of a Tom fan myself. Tonight, he plays at the House of Blues, and I can assure you, it's gonna rage. (Sorry, I had to.) Around town, Nebula Drag rock the Casbah, Gessafelstein plays Park at the Park and Cardiac Kidz play their second reunion show this weekend at Bancroft Bar.
