Sounds Like San Diego: May 6



    We can always be sure there's great music in San Diego, but it's a rare night when there are so many touring acts in town on the same night. There's the sold-out Fleet Foxes show at Spreckels, the Robert Cray Band at the Belly Up, the Submarines at the Loft, Atmosphere at House of Blues and Ghostland Observatory over at 4th & B. These are all solid shows, and it's a pretty tough call, but each will bring its own mood and vibe, so whether you're in the mood for baroque folk pop, dance, blues, indie or hip-hop, we've got it all tonight in San Diego.
