Sounds Like San Diego: December 16



    San Diego's own As I Lay Dying headlines Soma tonight. In celebration of the band's 10 year anniversary, it released a new EP, Decas, which reached No. 2 on the iTunes Rock chart. A 17-date national tour wraps tomorrow in Vegas, but tonight's homecoming will certainly be one of the best of the tour. Over at the Casbah, Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects headline a dance party that's certain to get the crowd moving, and at Soda Bar, Cuckoo Chaos return home and appear with Jamuel Saxon and Tourism, who are debuting and feature Dustin Illingsworth of Kite Flying Society.
