Sounds Like San Diego: February 14

Chuck Ragan, Pearl Charles, Lettuce and more head up tonight's lovey-dovey live-music action

Whether you get all lovey dovey this Valentine's Day or wanna kick it low-key style, tonight's options are certain to please. At the Casbah, Chuck Ragan returns and to me, this one is extra special because Jesse LaMonaca is one of the support acts and he just isn't playing enough these days. Meanwhile, Soda Bar has the lovely indie music of Los Angeles performer Pearl Charles, and funk band Lettuce returns to town with a show at the Observatory. For lovers of classics, Dizzy's hosts their annual tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. These are just a few of our options tonight and I'm excited to get out tonight and feel the love that music brings this Valentine's humpday.
