Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 17

The Lost '80s tour brings the best one-hit wonders to Humphreys

Grab your kayak or canoe -- or maybe just your wallet -- because everybody will be having fun tonight. At Humphreys, the Lost '80s tour is here for two nights, and it's quite a collection of artists. While no musician wants to think of themselves as a one-hit wonder, tonight's assemblage of artists will certainly be playing their most known hits from the '80s. Get there early, because you definitely don't want to miss any of these acts. Personally, I always had a really soft spot for Cutting Crew, but all of the performers will take you back to the glory of the '80s. Meanwhile, Brazilian Girls play to a sold-out crowd at the Casbah, punk rock legends X play Belly Up and Big Mountain play the Holding Company in Ocean Beach.
