Sounds Like San Diego: February 23

X Ambassadors, Ron Pope, Missing Persons, Bahamas and more are making tonight a blockbuster


I don't really need to tell you what a "get" it was for Missing Persons to play the Casbah, and it's no surprise it sold out in minutes -- and since Bahamas are trailblazing, it's no shocker their Belly Up show is sold out, too (read the SoundDiego interview with the show's opener, the Weather Station, here). Luckily it's a pretty stacked night in San Diego, so if you didn't plan ahead, you can still get to SOMA and grab tickets for X Ambassadors from the box office, or if local stuff is your spice, hang out with our friends Grizzly Business at Bar Pink. If you're looking for hardcore, All Pigs Must Die are at Soda Bar and they're a supergroup featuring members of Converge, Bloodhorse and the Hope Conspiracy; or go party with the first of two nights with the Spits at Space.
