Sounds Like San Diego: August 7

Get up on cloud nine with Australia's multi-instrumentalist, Xavier Rudd at the Belly Up



    While American folk bands expand their sounds with instruments like banjos, cellos, and melodicas -- Australian performer, Xavier Rudd will raise the stakes by playing bells, banjos, stomp boxes and three didgeridoos (among his many instruments), alone. It's hard to avoid the word "hippy" when the themes of his music are so socially conscious they leave you warm and fuzzy. He's not your average "burner," though expect to see some in the crowd. Rudd plays the second of his two night stint at the Belly Up.
