    Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile headline House of Blues Wednesday.

    Get out! When I first heard that Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett were recording and touring together, I just about lost my mind. I had the opportunity to work for Kurt Vile and he was so charming -- he told me he'd add me to their Coachella guest list (obviously there were some adult beverages involved so I didn't really take the gesture seriously) -- and early in Courtney Barnett's career, I had the chance to interview her for SoundDiego and at the end of speaking with her, I told her the next time around I'd be seeing her in a larger venue (which incidently, was at Outside Lands that same year). So two artists whom I adore have found one another and tonight they play a sold-out show at House of Blues. Double awesome swoon. Around town, Austin psych band Holy Wave play Soda Bar, our buddies Marujah bring their Mexi-rockin-ska to the Casbah, and Aussie DJ/producer Alison Wonderland returns to San Diego for a show at the Observatory.
