Sounds Like San Diego: August 3

Rooney headline an all-ages shindig at the Irenic Thursday -- just in time to kick off the weekend

There's a some superb sonic selections tonight as you make your plans to kick off the weekend early. Perhaps when you were listening to Rooney, you were single and childless...tonight, they're playing an all-ages show at the Irenic which means you can totally bring the kiddos to see the rock band. At the Casbah, an incredible lineup of locals with Oh, Spirit! and Bit Maps offers a great Thursday plan as well. Inspired and the Sleep headline a local night at Belly Up and you can enjoy some classics with KC & the Sunshine Band at Sycuan. If you want an early evening chill session, head to Panama 66 for the Moves Collective.
