Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 14

Mutual Benefit tops Wednesday night's concert options with his beautiful, melancholic sounds

I know it's too soon to talk about Thanksgiving, but it can't come soon enough. Until then, however, we shall pass the nights with brilliant live music, like Mutual Benefit. The project of Brooklynite Jordan Lee, he enlists various musicians to create his beautiful, layered, melancholic sounds. Pretty music for heavy hearts, if you will. Meanwhile, the Selecter is back at the Casbah and the last show got rave reviews so you might want to make sure you don't miss this one. For the dance crowd, "Doses and Mimosas" performers Cherub are at House of Blues, and classic rocker Todd Rundgren plays a sold-out night at the Belly Up.
