Sounds Like San Diego: April 19

Kick off the weekend with the Interrupters, Los Lobos, DMX, Yob and more tonight

It's weekend two of Coachella, so if you're heading to the desert, stay hydrated, lather on the sunscreen, and have fun for us. For the rest of us sticking around, we've got some great shows tonight, like the always fun Interrupters playing a sold-out show at the Observatory North Park or the Tex-Mex stylings of Los Lobos, who play a sold-out show at Belly Up. Aussie Kirin Callinan comes to Soda Bar and the Casbah hosts another Emo Nite for the emo-obsessed. You can also just get down to Blonde's weekly dance party, catch local metal act Beyond My Afterlife at SOMA, and the lovely Erika Davies plays at Panama 66. It's a good weekend with lots of activity so it should be really simple to find the shows that speak to you.
