Sounds Like San Diego: August 17

Snow Patrol makes a rare San Diego appearance at Harrah's Resort SoCal

There are a handful of bands for whom I am a total fangirl. I suppose it has to do with where you are in your life when you are first introduced to a band, or maybe they're brand new (or new to you) and you grow as they grow and you just feel some kinship in that adjacency. Whatever the case may be, I unapologetically love and adore Snow Patrol. My first introduction was with the release of "Final Straw," though over time, I've gone back to the beginning and have doused myself in their catalogue. It's been a few years since the band came to our region, so I'm definitely excited to make the trek to Harrah's SoCal tonight to see them in all their glory. If you can't travel quite so far for a show, Jonny Wagon celebrate their album release at the Casbah with some of SD's finest, Nathaniel Rateliff plays the track, and Niall Horan headlines at Mattress Firm.
