Sounds Like San Diego: June 21

Joel P. West's band, the Tree Ring, perform Thursday at the Luce Loft



    It isn't often that the majority of music options occur downtown, but on Thursday night there are enough special shows going on that I'll say you might want to catch a cab to downtown and plan on hopping around from space to space. Starting with an all-ages show, Sezio is back at the Luce Loft with a special evening with the Tree Ring. Fronted by Joel P. West, the band will be performing music from its forthcoming album and the space is intimate. The show is at 7 p.m, so once it's done, you can wander over to El Dorado to catch the Blackout Party or over to Mary Jane's Underground at the Hard Rock Hotel for a set by Bunny Gang and Hills Like Elephants. If downtown is too much, take a short jaunt to Banker's Hill for Tan Sister Radio or head to the for Hawthorne Heights.
