Sounds Like San Diego: April 8

On Sunday night, join the pride as Soft Lions roar into Bar Pink

Local music lovers, rejoice! You have some great options for live music tonight. At the Casbah, Tape Heads headline a show after their recent EP release, "Yew," while our friends Soft Lions headline Bar Pink. Lisa Sanders plays a special show at Museum of Making Music and Tijuana band Maura Rosa celebrates a CD release at Blonde. In the way of touring bands, Bay Area's Sloth & Turtle bring math rock to Soda Bar, and New York metal comes to Brick by Brick in the form of Prong. This town always has fun shows if you just dig deep enough to find it.
