Sounds Like San Diego: April 12



    It's Thursday night in San Diego, and the options are plentiful and varied. Indie darlings Chairlift return to town, and should be a solid pick for the night. For those looking for something a bit heavier and darker, legendary Acid Mothers Temple take over the Soda Bar. Comedic musician (or is it musical comedian?) Tim Minchin brings his unique and bizarre comedy to Balboa Theatre, and for those of you who love some Rock en Espanol, Belanova return to town with a show at the House of Blues. There are dozens of other great options to get you ready for the weekend, so look it over and check out some live music.
