Sounds Like San Diego: February 21

Circa Survive headline a huge bill at House of Blues while Tuesday also goes big around town

It's a rockstar night in San Diego tonight, so plan on getting out of the house after you get your disco nap. At the Observatory, AFI play their second of three sold-out nights while Philly's Circa Survive melt faces at House of Blues. We'll be getting down with some "gothic blues" with Adia Victoria at the Casbah and the Loft at UCSD offers up Burger Records' Aquadolls. There's even a show for your retired relatives with Englebert Humperdinck playing the first of two nights at Sycuan. If all that still doesn't pull you out tonight, our friends the Hand of Gavrilo play Soda Bar and they're definitely worth your attention.
