June is never an easy month in San Diego. That weird gloom sets in, and the usually laid-back demeanor of the city becomes downright dour.

In this episode of A Trolley show, Costa and his band perform their bouncy, hypnotic "Walls Like Windows"—which, in the tradition of Neil Young or Wilco, is perfect desert music (and perhaps the only instance where bongos are forgivable).
