Habitat House is awaking from a long hibernation to host their first show in over a year, this Saturday night at 730pm. The evening will feature two spacey, solo sets by Andrew Caddick of Jeans Wilder, and by Nima Kazerouni of Los Angeles-based So Many Wizards, who recently debuted a new solo project called Crown Plaza. The show is free, and all ages.

The idea of adopting an LA-style, monthly residency has been floating around San Diego venues for a while now. Kicking off the new year, both Soda Bar and Casbah are giving it a go, hosting Barbarian and Family Wagon respectively.
We think this is a worthy trend to adopt and a great way to send a rising act into the new year with a full head of steam. Drag yourself out a couple Mondays in January to support! Details and full lineups for Barbarian's Soda Bar residency here, and the same for Family Wagon's Casbah residency here.

Cuckoo Chaos has released an albums worth of home recordings, most of which have never seen the light of day until now. In a fundraising effort for their sophomore record, they've put 11 tracks on their Bandcamp Page for $10 bucks. There is some definitely magic in these jangly, rough songs, and we believe this band is well worth supporting. Check out "The Ballad of What Was" below, along with a bonus 12th track, an early version of their hit Jamb Song.
Grab the full record here! Do it. And you can catch Cuckoo Chaos live in San Diego on January 25th at Soda Bar, and at The Loft at UCSD on the 30th with Akron Family.
