Beat your heart out

Brody Dalle has a set of vox that reminds me of sweaty, packed VFW punk rock shows. The former Distillers frontwoman is back with a new band (Spinnerette) and a soon to be released 4-song EP, “Ghetto Love”. It leans more on the rock side, which makes me miss the scream-o stuff but it’s early on, and they’re unsigned so the future looks optimistic.

New Balance adds color

Legendary rock club celebrates 20 years!

The Casbah first opened its doors in 1989 and like they say, the rest is history. Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair, Morphine, Weezer, Jesus Lizard, Mudhoney, Rollins, X, The Cult, MGMT, White Stripes, Death Cab For Cutie, The Arcade Fire and Rocket From The Crypt have all rocked the Casbah. The San Diego landmark is an underground staple, embraced by rock-n-roll advocates from coast to coast. This January, Casbah celebrates 20 years with a month-long, much anticipated string of anniversary shows. Bands whose early Casbah gigs infiltrated an entire movement will reunite to pay homage to the local institution. Tickets and full calendar listings here.
