Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 3



    Oh, Friday! It's been, like, a whole week since last we met, and you keep delivering such amazing choices for the fine people of San Diego. This week, you bring options of such magnitude, like Cymbals Eat Guitars at Soda Bar and the kings of the 42-second songs, Retox, at the Hideout. I'm feeling a little partial to Aaron Behrens & the Midnight Stroll, because they've been getting such great reviews and because I loved Aaron so much at the helm of Ghostland Observatory, and even though the sound is very different, I'm sure any project fronted by this guy has to be awesome. But there's also Blondie at Harrah's Resort Southern California and New Found Glory at the House of Blues to contend with, too. There's no way this can't be an awesome night, no matter which show you choose.
