While surfing this weekend (the Internet not the Pacific) I noticed local band Barbarian have been doing some impressive touring of late. Opening for Natasha Khan's group, better known as Bat For Lashes, is impressive to say the least. While these fine lads are no stranger to San Diego music fans, here's hoping the word is spreading about just how good this band is in the live setting. Being label mates (Manimal Vinyl) provides a platform for undiscovered talent to emerge. A homecoming show of sorts takes place on Thursday September 5 at Soda Bar. Andrew Mills is the unassuming leader of Barbarian, and happens to be one of the really nice guys in the music world. Go to the show and support some of the best in local music.
If you have yet to see Barbarian perform live, head to City Heights on Sept. 5. Tickets can be purchased here.
