Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 22

Down at the House of Blues on Tuesday: electro-indie rockers Phantogram, who seem to be all over TV ads



    Music isn't supposed to be this good all at once, especially not on a Tuesday, but San Diegans are going to have to make some tough choices. At San Diego State, Passion Pit returns to town with the amazing Joy Formidable. Down at the House of Blues is the Seattle electro-indie rock duo Phantogram, whose "Diamonds" seems to be all over television ads; while the Irenic hosts Carbon Leaf. For local options, the lineup at the Belly Up competes with the free Staring at the Sun CD release party at the Casbah, which will feature live acoustic acts all night long, as well as free copies of the compilation for anyone who attends. It's a pretty super night of music if you have the will to get out for the night.
