Sounds Like San Diego: March 5

Metric, Muse, Adia Victoria, Twiddle and more play in San Diego Tuesday

It's Fat Tuesday, so if you're in the mood for celebrating, there are plenty of ways to do that whether you're actually participating in Lent or not. For me, however, it's just Tuesday and a chance to catch an amazing show. At SDSU's Open Air Theatre, Metric and Zoe co-headline. It warms my liberal bleeding heart that a female-fronted Canadian band and a male-fronted Latin rock band from Mexico have teamed up to tour together and I think this show is going to be extra special. Meanwhile, Muse is back in town. The superstar arena rockers have earned their way to being the mega-band they are now, so I imagine Pechanga Arena will also be outstanding. At the Casbah, Adia Victoria perform, newcomers Kikagaku Moyo play a sold-out show at Soda Bar, and jam band Twiddle hit the Belly Up.
