Sounds Like San Diego: April 25

The 1975 head up Tuesday's big live-music options -- get the scoop

The 1975 by Fatima Kelley

Everybody has different standards and ideas of what it means for a band to have "made it." Various stages of success are standard...national club tour, selling out larger rooms, playing theaters, being invited to festivals, getting radio airplay are all some markers. But one I always think is when other bands categorize their music as sounding like yours. These days, if a band "sounds like the 1975," you probably want to check them out, but if you're lucky, you can actually see the 1975 tonight at SDSU's Open Air Theatre. Meanwhile, the Belly Up hosts a second night with Jamtown, the Fresh Brunettes bring girl power to the Casbah, and experimental music collective Wrekmeister Harmonies plays at Space. If you're feeling a little bit country, the Stagecoach preview hits the Observatory with Jamey Johnson, Margo Price, and Brent Cobb.
