San Diego Shows–Monday, July 11
PLAN A: The Non, Wols, Skyline Union @ Tin Can Ale House. Oklahoma City’s The Non throw down unpredictable instrumental rock, setting up mazes of intricate guitars only to smooth them out in lush soundscapes. Texas duo Wols will start things off mellow with their pretty folk duets. BACKUP PLAN: The New Regime, The Gift / Curse, I Own the Secret @ The Casbah.
