San Diego’s Flaggs bid farewell to Leslie Schultze on Friday night. The bassist, who also previously played in The New Kinetics, is leaving San Diego to pursue a career opportunity. Schultze’s impending departure made for a bittersweet set, with singer/guitarist Lindsay Matheson leading the crowd in a celebratory raising of glasses. The band performed tracks like “Take a Ride” and “Got You Down” with lots of energy and emotion, ending the era in style.

La Luz followed Flaggs, bringing their brand of Seattle surf-rock to the Soda Bar. The charming all-woman group put on a good show, and the audience danced up a storm. One mongrel fan even twirled around on a pole near the stage.
