Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 2

If you had to work over the holiday, X's early Casbah show is a great way to spend your Monday

Dan Chusid

It's kinda funny trying to have a secret show with X, but eventually the band played at Wonderfront and didn't have to keep tonight's Casbah show a secret any longer. We've seen the band over the years as they've played big shows and little shows and all venues in between, and you'd think a Monday night would be a hard sell, but the show is a little bit earlier than usual, with doors at 8 p.m., so if you had to work over the holiday, this is a great way to spend your Monday night. Around town, Soda Bar hosts a comedy night, Deering Banjos hosts a special Dueling Banjos at the Holding Company and South Korean rapper Crucial Star plays at the Voodoo Room. If you're looking for a new adventure, music bar Metl, which took over the space of the Hopping Pig in downtown, opens its doors for a grand opening celebration.
