Sounds Like San Diego: April 8

Perfect weather brings Green Day to Valley View Casino Center

I love this time of year. The sun is almost always shining, the weather is almost always a perfect 73 degrees, and bands love playing in San Diego. At Valley View Casino Center, Green Day and Against Me! play the final U.S. date of their tour before heading to the international portion. Meanwhile, Sound Tribe Sector Nine, aka STS9, bring their massive sound -- a unique blend of electronic, jazz, funk and more -- to the Observatory. The Casbah hosts an Art Unites party with Dreams Made Flesh, and Poway OnStage welcomes classical guitarists Andy McKee and Celino Romero. There are plenty more options, including the Maine and the Mowgli's at House of Blues, Svetlanas at Soda Bar and legend Graham Nash plays a sold out show at the Museum of Making Music.
