MUST HEAR

With a name like Get Back Loretta, you would be correct to think a band has a Beatles influence or two. And indeed, this beloved San Diego quintet does, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Performing at Che Café on Dec. 1, the group earned an impressive five San Diego Music Awards between 2005 and 2008, all in pop categories, but in truth its influences are so varied, Get Back Loretta’s sound might best be likened to a kaleidoscope of pop music, ranging from rock to experimental sounds, all drenched in melody. Anyone who likes their music adventurous with a surplus of song hooks will love every second of this show.

Get Back Loretta: Saturday, Dec. 1 at Che Café, 7461 Girard Ave. 7 p.m., $8. All ages. www. thechecafe.blogspot.com/
