Sounds Like San Diego: August 9

Melissa Etheridge heads up a full Sunday of live music in San Diego

Erica Camille

With many schools going back into session this week, this weekend has felt so final. Fortunately, we live in San Diego and it's pretty much summer year-round, and while the tourism spots are packed, we also have a beautiful music scene year-round. Tonight you can catch a show presented by Listen Local at the Casbah with Katie Leigh and the Infantry, or head up to Soda Bar for Big Ups. The Observatory has Screeching Weasel and Bar Pink has Have Gun Will Travel. The big show tonight, however, is Melissa Etheridge at Humphrey's By the Bay. After a show last night at Thornton Winery, no doubt she'll be spot-on under the stars in the harbor.
