Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 15

Alarm sells out so head to Observatory for Royal Blood

Tonight is going to be a really excellent night of music. The Casbah is super sold-out as '80s new-wavers the Alarm return to town accompanied by local mods, Manual Scan. If you didn't grab tickets, you can definitely hit Royal Blood at Observatory North Park for British modern rock from this decade. The tour is in support of Royal Blood's second record, which dropped earlier this summer. Meanwhile, the massive talent of Jill Scott will fill Symphony Hall with beautiful music, Portland's Secret Drum Band (featuring members of !!!, Explode Into Colors and Unwound) play Soda Bar and Pop Warner play Space.
