Sounds Like San Diego: April 29

The last time Dan Deacon was in town, he got squished between Spoon and Arcade Fire for a DJ set. It was a fun but weird dance party for the few hundred people who were in the pit, but everyone else just seemed puzzled, not really understanding what was going on. On Wednesday, Deacon is making it up to us with a proper headlining show at the Casbah. You can be sure this is going to be a sweaty and dirty dance party -- and with Prince Rama opening, you should maybe make sure you have some leeway on getting to work early on Thursday. Meanwhile, another dance party awaits at Soda Bar, with Doldrums and Moon King. Doldrums is on SubPop, which carries significant weight on its own, but in this small setting, who can say what the night will bring? Around town, From Indian Lakes make an appearance on the Voodoo Stage at the House of Blues, legendary band Helmet play the 20th Anniversary of " Betty" at the Belly Up, and Cobraheart celebrates two years of shows at U-31 with Femme Fatality and the latest San Diego breakout, Prgrm (watch our SoundDiego Spotlight video here).
