Sounds Like San Diego: April 2



    Monday offers several options to make it worth your while to head out on a school night. Up at the Belly Up you can catch the eagerly awaited return of Heartless Bastards. Over the course of four records, the group has seen a few lineup changes and refined its sound, but the heart of the band has always been and will forever be Erika Wennerstrom, who NPR described as "a rock star in the making." Heartless Bastards' latest album, Arrow, was released on Valentine's Day and is sure to be a major part of their setlist. Over at the Casbah, Marcus Foster and Sam Bradley share the night. I'm especially fond of Foster's record, Nameless Path, which puts him in a league with musicians like Bobby Long and Joshua James. His songs are better suited for whiskey and tears than kisses and wine. The first time I heard Foster's ballad, "I Was Broken," I completely stopped what I was doing, listened to the song a few times on a loop and then shared the video on my heartbroken friends' Facebook walls. When you hear it, you might, too.
