Sounds Like San Diego: August 17

Grouplove, Portugal.The Man and Tokyo Police Club rock SDSU's Open Air Theatre Sunday



    There's a lot going on today, and after you check out ArtWalk at Liberty Station, there's no better way to enjoy a hot August night than under the stars at the Open Air Theatre to catch three of today's best indie acts- Grouplove, Portugal.The Man, and Tokyo Police Club. These are bands that have pounded the pavement with small club shows and after festivals and such, they have just proved that they're at the level to play outside to larger crowds. Meanwhile, the on-again off-again Mrs. Magician perform tonight at Soda Bar, Glass Spells at the Casbah (read our review of their new EP here), and Til-Two hosts Octagrape.
