Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 19

Remember how I told you to chill out and take it easy when you went out last night? Well, that's because Friday has so many shows your head might explode. For a super-fun all-ages dance party, head to the Observatory North Park for Bag Raiders. The Aussie duo bring positive vibes and energetic dance music while staying true to their roots and playing real instruments. If that's not your "bag," Radiation City and Deep Sea Diver will keep the indie kids happy, and you can get there early and know your ears will be treated by locals Oh, Spirit, who open the show. For more of a country vibe, Sam Outlaw is at Soda Bar, and our buddy Nicky Venus excites at Bar Pink. Look on down the list -- there are plenty of awesome shows to make this a Friday night to remember.
