As far as all ages venues here go, how terrible is The Irenic?
Surprisingly The Irenic isn't that bad for an all ages venue, think I've seen La Sera and Titus Andronicus there before. The sound system is actually pretty good and they serve beer and wine. Only weird part for me is that it's in a church.
So did that Future Islands show get cancelled or something? No mention of it on their website, or The Casbah's, or Irenic's....
It looks like they have to wait a bit, presumably due to FYF's lineup announcement next week. They posted this on FB yesterday after people were asking why the tickets weren't on sale:
Casbah San Diego
Loose lips sink ships. Sometimes we announce a show and then the band gets booked for a big event and then we're not allowed to talk about our show anymore until the big show is sold out. We can only speak vaguely here, but if you saw a show announced that you were really excited about and then it disappeared, all I can tell you is that it will still happen, we'll announce it properly, and we'll let you all know when it goes onsale. In the meantime, this is an interesting article about what is known as the "radius clause". http://www.bohemian.com/northbay/the...nt?oid=2458475
Followed by this:
Casbah San Diego
We love FYF. A perfect example of someone seeing a deficiency in their city and making something happen, DIY style. When it's announced, we help co-promote so you'll see ticket links on our site.

The Irenic is a fine venue. Was just there for Kishi Bashi (and of Montreal a few months back). Sound is fine. There is a slight slant down from back to front so it's easier to see the stage. There are worse venues in SD ... soma, soda, viejas arena, rimac, etc.
And $5 beers -- usually a Stone on draft and Stella (bottle).

Whoa. Did you guys know about Jagwar Ma @ the Casbah in August? Didn't see any announcements.
Wed, August 6 @ the Casbah.
Dammit same day as Arctic Monkeys. Think I can double dip, since headliner goes on late at the Casbah. https://casbah.frontgatetickets.com/...d4advqycwnh5hk
btw ... i've never had a problem getting into a sold out show at the Casbah. Just show up before the opener and you'll find at least one person with an extra. be patient and ask nicely. even got comped once by the opener.
