Sounds Like San Diego: May 11



    It's a little surprising to see so many touring acts come through town on a Wednesday night, but sometimes that's a blessing because of the diversity of acts. From the fierce woman who takes no guff -- KT Tunstall over at the House of Blues -- to the post rock of Mogwai to the quiet indie rock of Lord Huron at the Loft, there are plenty of selections to get you over the Wednesday hump. If you're looking a little more off the radar, Soda Bar and Tin Can have pretty cool rock shows tonight, too. I'd also throw in a recommendation for Man Man, but the show is sold out, so unless you have a ticket, you're gonna have to make due somewhere else.
