Sounds Like San Diego: June 12

The Hiroshima Mockingbirds, Bloxx, John Paul White and others headline shows around town Wednesday

We've got a big night of music in store for you whatever your particular tastes might be. At House of Blues Voodoo Room, it's all about new(ish) music discovery, as SiriusXM's AltNation Advanced Placement tour rolls through. These are artists who have the potential to be the "next big thing" in alternative radio, so If you love 91x or ALT949, these might be the hits you're hearing months down the road. I've definitely enjoyed Warbly Jets in the past and am looking forward to seeing Bloxx's San Diego debut and learning more about Hembree as well. Meanwhile, fans of Civil Wars must be losing their minds at the possibility of seeing John Paul White, one half of the duo, at the Belly Up. The seated shows at the Solana Beach venue are extra special and intimate and seem to chill on the cameras-in-your-face-for-the-entire-show vibe you can get a modern shows, so this is a must see. Bar Pink's got a solid local lineup with the Hiroshima Mockingbirds, WidowMade headline the Casbah, and Nashville's JohnnySwim perform at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay which is all but guaranteed a perfectly clear night under the stars.
