Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 16

The Growlers empty their SoCal charm into Observatory Tuesday


If you've never been to a Growlers show, you might not realize just how much this band is the epitome of SoCal culture. The loose swagger, lazy vocals and over all chill vibe of the group, coupled with their fans who wreak total havoc, this is either your dream-come-true show experience or your worst nightmare. I happen to dig the vibe, even if it makes me feel 20 years too old to be in the room. They're playing the first of two nights at the Observatory, and there's a chance you can still snag tickets to either show. Meanwhile, Casbah tones it down several notches with the artistically diverse Emily Wells (and our old friend Keith Sweaty to open the show!), while the Outer Vibe gets sonically adventurous at Soda Bar. For a wild card, head to the Belly Up for Revival of the Singer Songwriter, where you never know who might show up.
