Sounds Like San Diego: August 16

F---ed Up join a cast of incredible acts performing in San Diego Sunday

The heat just isn't quitting and neither is the music. Tonight, you can catch Canadian Polaris Prize winner, F---ed Up, at the Casbah. That award, which they received in 2009, is a big deal because it is awarded by music critics to the best full-length Canadian release each year. The band has played the Casbah five out of the last seven years, so on this sixth visit, you can be sure they will be showing the love to their loyal crowd. Meanwhile Kera & the Lesbians will stun Soda Bar, the unstoppable Kelly Clarkson drops in at Viejas Arena, and songwriting legend Burt Bacharach won't see any raindrops falling on his head at Summer Pops at Embarcadero Marina Park South.
