Sounds Like San Diego: June 13

Big-name hitters like Goo Goo Dolls, Nelly, Borgeous, Oh Sees and more headline shows in San Diego Friday

Goo Goo Dolls 9.12.17 Fatima Kelley (4)

Working behind the scenes at lots of local events, I get to see interesting trends. Like, I see how many people are looking for tickets to a sold-out show like Oh Sees, who play tonight at Belly Up, and also how many scams are out there selling either fake tickets or insanely priced real ones. I know it sucks to miss a show you want to see, but don't support these people; they're ruining shows for the rest of us. What you can do is go discover something new, like Operators at the Casbah, which features Dan Boeckner of indie fave Wolf Parade, or catch Boston indie-rockers Pile at Soda Bar (read the SoundDiego interview with the band here). You could go enjoy the sweet tunes of Parachute at House of Blues, and I suspect you can find some last-minute tickets to Train and Goo Goo Dolls if you're in that sorta mood. Point being, there are always great shows and events and there's no reason to give your hard-earned money to thieves and crooks.
