Sounds Like San Diego: Feb.17

The boys are back in town! The former San Diegans of the Crocodiles haven't lived in town for some time now, but we still love them and count them among our own. While they've traded our town for bigger cities, we're looking forward to the reunion when they play on Friday at the Hideout. We should also mention that the Hideout has had a bit of a remodel, removing the booths to allow for better viewing of the bands, so it's worth checking out if you haven't been by in a while. Meanwhile, the Casbah hosts the cleverly named Steve'n'Seagulls. Just as Metalachi turns metal songs into mariachi, S'n'S turn metal tracks into bluegrass and country thumpers. The English Beat kick off their first sold out Belly Up weekend of 2017, No Mames Fest is under way at Ken Club, Diamond Lakes are at the Merrow, and Miss Erykah Badu will bring down the sold-out house at the Observatory. If you're in the mood for one of those "next big thing" type artists, check out Kevin Garrett at the House of Blues.
