Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 20

KinaGrannis copy

I don't know how holiday weeks end up feeling so long, but the weekend is finally here and there are tons of shows around town to catch your music fix. From DJ extraordinaire Steve Aoki at SOMA to Dead Rock West at Java Joe's and every taste in between, music abounds on Friday night. Thie Casbah is sold out with the always awesome Surfer Blood (read our interview here) with killer support from Talk In Tongues and Barbarian. Con Brio and Taurus Authority make the Merrow a great spot to hang, or tie your music into a night at the museum with Venice at the the Fleet Science Center. Kina Grannis should be a hit at Porter's Pub, and Guttermouth get gritty at Soda Bar. Yes, there are a lot of choices, but that's the way we like it.
