San Diego Shows–Monday, Feb. 15
PLAN A: Hearts for Haiti Benefit @ Belly Up. A who’s-who of local singer-songwriters, including Gregory Page, Sara Petite and Robin Henkel, come together to raise money for the Red Cross. PLAN B: Diamonds Under Fire, Lanterns, The Feelings Mutual @ Soda Bar. Vanessa Silberman (aka Diamonds Under Fire, above) is what happens when you raise a girl on a steady diet of drugs and ’90s alternative rock. If you like Silverchair and Helmet but always wished they had a woman singing lead, here you go. Enjoy it while she’s still under the radar. PLAN C: Tribute to the Reggae Legends @ San Diego Sports Arena. Might as well go if you have the day off and you like contact highs.
