The Northstar Session
Casbah – San Diego, CA
This was my first show at the Casbah. The Casbah is probably as big as most celebrities bathrooms. It has a capacity of 132 people. The stage is small but not the smallest I’ve seen. If you aren’t familiar with the Casbah it is a legendary place in San Diego and draws big names to the intimate venue. We recently covered People in Planes and Filter here. I really want to call the Casbah the Epic Hole in the Wall Joint in San Diego. Don’t get me wrong, it sets the perfect atmosphere for most of the bands that play there and the acoustics are fabulous, but it still looks like a hole in the wall.

The Northstar Sessions took the stage at 9:30pm with Matt’s voice being a bit under the weather thanks to the dry air. The show was still stellar as Matt kept hydrated and the band played along.
The guys canceled their show for tonight at Molly Malone’s due to Matt recovering. While waiting to catch these guys live, check out their album on their Myspace.
Check out these guys when you can! Check out our review from their Belly Up show in San Diego opening for Matthew Sweet. They completely stole the show!
