Sounds Like San Diego: October 18

Givers return after a four-year absence, while Sunday pops off with tons of live music



    5 Falltacular Ways to Connect With Your Family
    Givers return to San Diego with a Belly Up show on Sunday, Oct. 18.

    It has been four long years since we've heard from Givers. The band that impressed us so much at Sunset Sessions; the band that sold out the Casbah in a heartbeat; the band that was signed to the very discerning, strategic and methodical Glassnote Records -- seemed to just disappear. Were they suddenly put on the backburner to let Mumford and Sons (of the same label) blossom? Were they too young to tour so intensely? Did they actually remain active and just blow off San Diego for four years? I have no idea. But what I do know is that I have been excited about this show since the moment it was announced and wouldn't miss it for the world. Still, if you're like, "who?" there are other options with the bad boys of Black Lips and Ariel Pink at the Observatory, El Ten Eleven play a second night at the Casbah, and Radioactivity headline Soda Bar.
