Sounds Like San Diego: November 19



    I don't know about you, but looking at tonight's events makes me hope the workday goes by quickly. The bonus is that if you plan right, you can probably check out a couple different shows tonight. I've got my three shows lined up with Fitz and the Tantrums playing a show for KPRI in La Costa, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin taking over the Loft at UCSD, and closing with the Thermals, who will certainly pack the Casbah. There are some great offerings for the all ages set tonight, too, with the Tragic Tantrum performing at Queen Bee's, Eisley and Ives the Band at Soma, and a full bill of locals at the Epicentre. Of course, you can't do it all, but that doesn't mean that any of the rest of the shows are any less worthy of your attention, so find your flavor and enjoy what San Diego has to offer tonight.
