Sounds Like San Diego: April 20

Mitski headlines a sold-out, all-ages show at the Irenic Wednesday

I love you, San Diego, but sometimes we're a little slow on the uptake. When Mitski released "Puberty 2" last year, she was all over satellite radio but barely made a peep locally. She packed out the very over-sold Constellation Room in Orange County but didn't play a local show. Her entire current tour has sold out far in advance, but ours didn't sell out until just a few days ago. No matter, eventually we get it, and tonight's Mitski show at the Irenic -- along with two other greats on the rise -- will be worth it (btw, she made SoundDiego's list of the top 10 buzz bands to catch at Coachella). It's not the only hot show in town tonight though: Dreamcar sold out Music Box and Kaleo have once again sold out the Belly Up, but there are still tickets available for Blossoms at Casbah (who also made our Coachella list), SOHN at Observatory, or Spiral Stairs at Soda Bar to make it a great Wednesday night.
