Sounds Like San Diego: August 20

Generationals, Herbie Hancock, and the Moody Blues' Justin Hayward top Tuesday's concert action

San Diegans are smart and with so many sites and apps to alert us about shows, we have to get used to more and more shows selling out in advance, even on a Tuesday. Tonight's show at the Casbah with Generationals and Pure Bathing Culture is going to be extra super great, but it sold out sometime over the past few weeks, so perhaps next time you'll get on the ball a little sooner. Meanwhile, legend Herbie Hancock plays Humphreys and there are still a smattering of tickets if you want to check that one out. Seattle's still pumping out more music per capita than most cities, and tonight Gypsy Temple headline Soda Bar, and Justin Hayward of the classic band the Moody Blues headlines a special seated show at the Belly Up. There's some gems out there tonight, so don't miss out on the good times.
