Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 16

With Louis XIV's second night at the Casbah and more, Saturday is filled with something for everyone

Louis XIV
Oh man. There are some seriously great shows tonight. From the continuation of Awesome Fest's Cancelled event at Bar Pink and the Office to Space and Soda Bar, to massive acts like Caifanes at Observatory or Panic! at the Disco at Pechanga arena, this night is filled with something for everyone. Personally, I'm excited about Pedro the Lion's return to San Diego with a show at the Irenic, but Louis XIV certainly brought it big last night at the Casbah, and I'm sure they intend to do the same again tonight. If you're feeling especially adventurous, head north to Escondido, where A Ship in the Woods presents Wax/Wane, an art show with a live performance by our friends in the Color Forty Nine.
