Local Goodness: Hills Like Elephants, The Midnight Pine @ Whistle Stop Friday October 25, 2013

While this writer is sometimes accused of solely focusing on touring bands visiting San Diego, I decided it was time to answer the critics and mention some upcoming events featuring bands only from America's Finest City. Two great bands are playing South Park's cozy Whistle Stop Bar on Friday with no cover (21+). First up will be SDMA winners The Midnight Pine (best local recording), featuring the wonderful vocalist Shelbi Bennett and the ubiquitous Al Howard playing everything (literally). The band is set to release their second full length album. Their performance will surely get you in the right mood for the night. Headlining are indie soul rockers Hills Like Elephants, a quintet led by keyboardist/vocalist Sean Davenport. The band already has two albums under its collective belt, so it is no wonder their audience is growing after seeing them perform live. This promises to be a great way to kick off the weekend. Be sure to read Saturday's preview tomorrow.
