Sounds Like San Diego: April 26

Willie Nelson & Family headline a sold-out Humphreys but if you didn't get tickets, you're in luck

As Coachella wound down, the buzz for Stagecoach began to swirl. The festival just made an agreement to broadcast live via Pandora, but if you don't want to wait for the weekend, grab your canoe or kayak and paddle up to the sold-out show at Humphreys with Willie Nelson & Family -- unless, of course, you had the foresight to grab your tickets in advance. Around town, there's plenty of other good stuff, like one of my favorite rock en espanol bands from college, Elefante, playing at Music Box or catch the warm Americana vocals of Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors at Belly Up. Montreal-based singer-songwriter Leif Vollebekk plays at the Casbah and the San Diego Symphony offers a pay-what-you-can sampler to their season at Symphony Hall. Personally, I plan on bouncing around to a couple shows then ultimately ending up at the Office, where the three-year anniversary of Under Cover is going to be amazing, with your favorite local artists playing a tribute to Pink Floyd.
