All You Need is Love (and Music)

Ain’t love grand? Roger and Sara Morrison sure think so — the San Diego lovebirds are about to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary on February 20th.

Whereas most couples would mark the milestone with a quiet dinner or one of those boxes of chocolate with too many nutty things and not enough caramel ones inside, the Morrisons have something much cooler in mind: a show at the Casbah.

A nice selection of San Diego bands will be on hand to pay tribute to the Morrisons’s special day. Get Back Loretta are headlining, and they’ll be supported by Wendy Bailey & the True Stories, Vanja James, and Roger’s own band, Listening to Rocks, who will play the Atari Lounge between sets.

Celebrating their anniversary at the Casbah might seem like a flight of fancy, but the decision was no accident. In what might have been the coolest wedding of all time, the Morrisons were actually married at the historic San Diego venue. (Did Lady Dottie and the Diamonds play your wedding? We didn’t think so.) You can read Sign On San Diego’s heartwarming account of the rock and roll nuptials here.

Tickets for the February 20 show are $5, and can be purchased at the door. True love sold separately.

Little Hurricane Blow Back Into Town

On April 2nd, Little Hurricane will blow back into San Diego for a show at the Casbah.

The San Diego duo made quite the splash around town last year, winning a San Diego Music Award for Best New Artist, rocking Rocktoberfest, and becoming the first band to perform for the Owl and Bear-programmed SoundDiego Sessions. But, just as we were getting to know and love them, Little Hurricane left San Diego to tour the country with no return date in sight.

Their wanderings may not be at an end yet, but that doesn’t mean they can’t come back and visit once in a while, and they’ll do just that on April 2nd for their CD release party at the Casbah. Also playing that night: Get Back Loretta, River City, and Low Volts. Continue reading…
