Look, I know Elliott posted that great preview about Sondre Lerche at the Belly Up. I also have been strongly suggesting that you RSVP to our free SoundDiego Live event at the House of Blues featuring Republic of Letters, Parker and the Numberman, and Black Resume. On top of that, there's great music at the San Diego County Fair, 91X is having a Battle of the Bands at West Coast Tavern, and Michael McGraw is over at Eleven, but I would be lying if I said that I haven't been waiting for tonight's Casbah show since Other Lives played their last note at the Soda Bar in May. This band is easily one of my favorites of the year (though they're touring on Tamer Animals, their second full length album). I mean, when I went to NYC, I considered going a few days early just to catch the band in Philly. Their instrumentation, vocals and songwriting all meet to create an impeccable live show. They already have their next show in San Diego booked, but they're opening for the sold out Bon Iver show at Spreckels, so see them in an intimate venue while you can. This is a co-headline show with The Rosebuds, who will also be opening for a portion of Bon Iver's tour, so you don't wanna miss them either.
Seriously, these guys are the real deal. Don't miss them. Click right or left arrows to see most of their Soda Bar set. (and sorry, apparently I never got around to adding titles)
