Sounds Like San Diego: April 17

Belle and Sebastian make a long-awaited return to San Diego Friday

Coachella's second weekend starts tonight, but we still have some artists lingering in town before returning to the desert. Belle and Sebastian and the stunning Perfume Genius perform to a sold-out audience at the Observatory while the Cribs rock out at the Casbah. If you're looking for late night fun, Belle and Sebastian throw down some DJ sets at Whistle Stop after their Observatory gig. Meanwhile, everything around town gets back to normal: Zeke hosts one of his showcases at Soda Bar, Cash'd Out play at the Belly Up and legendary performer Lila Downs is at Symphony Hall.
