Sounds Like San Diego: August 30

San Cisco heads up an all-ages shindig at the Irenic -- and that's just the tip of the live-music iceberg

Ebony Talijancich

Is Australia producing the best bands in indie and alternative rock or is it just that only the very best make it to our American ears? Either way, you will want to catch Australian indie-pop quartet San Cisco when they play an all-ages show tonight at the Irenic. Of course, you're not limited to one show in this town, so you can also catch locals the Strawberry Moons at Soda Bar, or psych-rockers Dark Thirty playing Casbah. For the reggae lovers, Josh Heinrichs, former frontman of Jah Roots, plays at Music Box, and Belly Up hosts a local lineup with A.J. Froman.
