Sounds Like San Diego: April 2

Boy King heads up a doozy of a Saturday in San Diego for live music

It's a doozy of a Saturday in San Diego! First off, the Fast Crowd is going to be packing it in early at the Casbah for Dan Padilla's Last Show. This is a packed lineup with 13 bands kicking off at 4 p.m. and it's nearly sold out, so don't wait to get down there. I predict a PBR shortage in San Diego after this one's done! Meanwhile, another early evening show is Geographer at the Irenic, who seem to be eternally touring and we all reap the benefit of such dedication. The Killers return to town with a massive show at Harrah's Event Center; White Denim and Sam Cohen will win over indie ears at the Belly Up; and critically acclaimed newcomers Mothers play at Soda Bar.
