Sounds Like San Diego: February 3



    Sometimes I think I should just leave Thursdays without recommendations. I can't help you navigate all of the choices, and at the same time there are so many great shows around town that it's hard to pick favorites.

    You can bet the indie kids will have a steady hold on Anthology as the Autumn Defense (read T. Loper's preview here) take the stage for the first time. Just because the band members come from the Wilco bloodline doesn't mean their sound is anywhere close, but their sound should fill the room quite well.

    Competing with the show, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will surely deliver a set that makes them worthy of their chart buzz and hype. Locally, check out the Tuggs, featuring longtime Dragons bassist Steve Rodriguez, over at the Casbah, or head over to the Tin Can for a Swim Party appearance, which seem to be few and far between lately. The local spots are all offering up great options tonight, so make an adventure out of it ... just save enough energy to get through work on Friday.
