Spring is almost upon us, which means the new release schedule is finally kicking into full gear. This week is a doozy, with new discs from Joanna Newsom, Johnny Cash, Alkaline Trio, Shout Out Louds and more. Start scrounging for cash, music junkies: The year's bound to only get better from here on out!
Just as important, M-Theory has two in-store concerts scheduled for the next couple weeks. Best of all: They're free!
Fri. Feb 26, 6 p.m.: Steve Poltz In-Store Performance
Come down this Friday to see Steve Poltz at an intimate in-store performance. If you didn't get to see him at the Belly Up last week or you just need more, come on down! You can pick up his latest album, Dreamhouse, while you're here.
Fri. Mar 5, Time TBA: Phantogram In-Store Performance

If you've been here recently, you've most likely gotten a sample of it, as it's been in rotation since its release. It will be their only San Diego performance. You won't want to miss this one!
