Sounds Like San Diego: February 23

Thursday's rockin': Pinback headline a sold-out Belly Up tonight -- while other great shows pepper San Diego

Can't you feel the fever in the air? Bands are really getting back on the road again and fewer nights leave you scratching your head about what to do. If anything, this week has served as a warning that you can't always wait until the last minute because the best shows have been selling out. Tonight, that's the case for the first night of Pinback at the Belly Up. It wasn't too long ago we were told that they were hanging their hats up, so it's great to know that at least for now, that's not the case. Meanwhile at the Irenic, Radical Face and the sweet sounds of Jenny O. provide a great all-ages option, while Suicidal Tendencies plan to wreak 'Havoc' on the Observatory -- as do Kim and the Created at the Hideout. Lots of good stuff to get into tonight so don't sleep on it!
