Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 16

We've hit that sweet spot of summer, and Milo Greene are capitalizing

I think we might be returning to that sweet spot of summer. Outside Lands just happened, and whether bands played there or not, it seems to magnetically draw artists to the West Coast. Tonight, Matthew Sweet, playing with a full band, stops in for his second night of tour. Street's a throwback to when we listened to college radio and stayed up all night on Sundays to watch "120 Minutes." It is definitely a treat to see him in action, especially since many of us never had the chance back in the day. Meanwhile, Green Flash concerts continue at Birch Aquarium with Milo Greene, who seem to come around to San Diego faithfully about once a year, so don't miss the chance. Classic rockers the Doobie Brothers play Humphreys, Music Box hosts Banda and Mt. Joy melts faces at Space.
