Sounds Like San Diego: April 17

Acid Mothers Temple head up a night of great live music in San Diego

While some of our team has been busy bringing you the sights of Coachella, the rest of us are right here at home loving the music rolling through town. Both Foals and James Bay are in town tonight, but with both sold out, you can still enjoy a night out with awesome shows all over. Soda Bar welcomes the return of Acid Mothers Temple, and the famed Shankar family line is represented with a show by Anoushka at the Balboa Theatre. The lovely and talented Laura Stevenson is back at the Casbah, and you should make sure to get there early for Chris Farren -- one of my personal favorites -- of the band Fake Problems. Plenty of fun other shows if you were slow on the draw for Observatory and Humphreys.
