Sounds Like San Diego: June 12

Glass Spells, Fences, RVG, the Weight Band and more top Thursday's live-music action

If you've been in San Diego for a long time, you might recall radio personality Marco Collins who was at 91x in the early days of the station. Marco has always been a tastemaker, or what we now call an "influencer" before it was a thing. He has impeccable taste in music and is credited with launching many music careers, so when he was going on about Fences a couple of years ago, I paid attention and remembered, and now the artist is on an acoustic solo tour dropping into the Casbah and it would seem foolish and irresponsible not to be there. Still, there are other great shows in town tonight, including Melbourne's RVG playing at Soda Bar (and drawing comparisons to Courtney Barnett), Glass Spells doing Disco Goth at Whistle Stop, mathy locals Year of the Dead Bird at Bar Pink, and the Weight Band headlining Belly Up.
