Sounds Like San Diego: August 25

Todd Terje heads up a terrific Thursday of live music in San Diego

The guys at LED and the people behind CRSSD Fest generally have the market cornered when it comes to EDM and electronic music coming to town, but that doesn't mean you have to wait months between festivals to get your fix. Tonight, Norwegian DJ and producer Todd Terje makes his debut appearance at the Observatory and for those of you who start your weekend off early, this is definitely the spot to let loose. Around town, take your pick of some of San Diego's best local bands with Oh, Spirit! at the Casbah; Gone Baby Gone at Bar Pink; Daniel Crawford at Sycamore Den; and the All Access Fest featuring 10 local bands at the Music Box.
