Not much in the way of news today, but if you are a local music fan, check out Troy's blog post about HOB San Diego Rocks! night.
Just a couple things for you...
There's an article written about Casiotone for the Painfully Alone in an Athens university paper. Check it out here.
Fans of Rock en Español favorites, Maná, will have to make the trek to LA this year to see the band. The band is touring the US starting August 28, playing places like San Antonio, Phoenix and Houston, and even Fresno gets a stop, but San Diego is skipped altogether. Maná will be in LA for four nights, from September 20 through the 23rd, which rules them out of playing Street Scene. Info available here.
Other "just announced" tours passing San Diego by: Beirut, Ryan Adams, Devendra Banhart, Handsome Furs, Jason Isbell (Drive-by Truckers), The New Year.
