For those of you who have been experiencing the post holiday live music slow down, fear not. The upcoming weekend is filled with shows worthy of your attendance. Kicking off the weekend this Friday is none other than the recently name changed trio Boy King, headlining a four band lineup at Soda Bar. Be sure to catch LA rockers Hi Ho Silver Oh, touring with their sophomore release in tow. Actress/musician Charlyne Yi and locals Mothlight round out the lineup. Saturday offers a terrific bill at the Casbah. The Howls and Mrs. Magician will be taking the stage as the month long anniversary continues at the Middletown venue. These two bands seem to be headed for bigger and better things in 2013. The Short Eyes and Teenage Burritos will get things rocking and rolling.
Sunday night marks the return of British rockers Keane to San Diego, fresh off their recently released album Strangeland. The absence of guitars has not diminished the popularity of this band. A full house is expected at the House of Blues for what promises to be an outstanding show. LA 5 piece Youngblood Hawke set the stage. If you are still yearning for a nightcap, head over to Soda Bar for Chris Brokaw (Codeine) and Jennifer O'Connor. Sounds (and looks) like a great weekend to me.
