Sounds Like San Diego: April 28

Thao & the Get Down Stay Down head up a lively night of music in San Diego on Thursday

Tonight is quite a fun night around town. For starters, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down perform at the Belly Up. Her new record, "A Man Alive," is one of those albums that you sing along with at the top of your lungs, only to sink in to the deeper meaning of the lyrics later, like realizing "Nobody Dies" is about a woman caught in an abusive relationship. Thao has a knack for this, making her music fun and catchy while addressing a whole lot more under the surface. I've been looking forward to this one for a while. Meanwhile, La Ley are back at the House of Blues for their second night, so lovers of rock en Espanol should be properly satiated. For an all-out night of fun, check out our friends Gone Baby Gone at Bar Pink for their free album release party.
