    Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 19
    Dan Chusid
    X headline Observatory North Park on Sunday, Aug. 19.

    Over the years, the punk band X have made San Diego a regular tour stop, whether as a complete band, or as individual members. Sometimes, they're super intimate shows, and sometimes they're a little bigger, but one thing remains true no matter where they perform -- they always put on an amazing show full of talent and heart. Tonight, they're back at the Observatory so they can spread their wings a bit, along with their generation-spanning fans. Around town, Timber Timbre have sold out the Casbah, and Portland dream-pop outfit Starover Blue headline Whistle Stop.
