Sounds Like San Diego: March 2, 2011



    I wish I could tell you about the last time I saw Crystal Castles, but the Casbah was packed, the room was hot, and that June night in 2008 is really just a blur. Tonight won't be any different at the sold-out show at the House of Blues, and the audience will be treated to a killer set by Suuns, too. If you didn't snag tickets but feel like dancing, head over to Casbah for YG, who has blown up on the charts in L.A. for "Toot It and Boot It." If you're looking to stay local, Soda Bar has a solid lineup with Funeral Party, Italian Japanese and Pretty Too Bad.
