Sounds Like San Diego: April 7

The Wind and the Wave bring their gorgeous indie-pop sound through Casbah Friday

I can't tell you how glad I am that the weekend is here. There are some great shows to catch this weekend no matter what you're into. At the Casbah, Austin indie duo the Wind and the Wave are sure to bring a great night while Hirie show the Belly Up why they won Best Reggae at this year's San Diego Music Awards. Genre-benders Clean Bandit must've liked their last show at the Observatory, because tonight they return while Teenage Bottlerocket bring their punk sound and attitude to Soda Bar. These are just a few, but Bosswitch, Andrew Nikatina, Desert Suns, Chugboat, and more offer up choices for your Friday night in San Diego.
