Sounds Like San Diego: April 15

Beach House head up an exciting night of live music in San Diego on Friday

It's tax day, which might be a bummer for some, but all the more reason to get out on the town and live it up a little bit. Unfortunately, tonight's two hottest shows -- Frankie Cosmos at the Che Cafe and Beach House at the Observatory -- are both sold out. Fun is still calling, however, because Wild Wild Wets lead an all-local night at the Casbah, Arizona pop rock band the Summer Set is at the Irenic for an all-ages show, and the Music Box has a fun night in store with tributes to Foo Fighters, Rage Against the Machine, and Weezer. Just don't limit yourself, because there's some interesting stuff all over town like Grassroots Oasis and the Industry in Chula Vista.
