Sounds Like San Diego: August 14

Gin Blossoms and Collective Soul team up for a show at Humphreys packed with nostalgic hits

Now we're getting into the week and it's picking up steam with some options for some '90s nostalgia, wild booty poppin', or scenic overlooks. At Humphreys, Collective Soul and Gin Blossoms join forces for their anthemic tunes while all the memories of those days flood back. Soda Bar is going a whole other route with Planet Booty, so throw on your jorts and half-tops and join in the outrageousness. The Green Flash Concert Series closes out their season with the Mother Hips and our pals Trouble in the Wind, and Springsteen's drummer brings Max Weinberg's Jukebox to the Belly Up, where the audience is encouraged to call out requests of rock hits spanning multiple decades. There are great options all the way down the list tonight and I may be just recovored enough from the weekend to foray out and find my own adventure.
