Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 25

It was just last summer when I had the opportunity to interview Metric for SoundDiego TV as they prepared to open for Imagine Dragons. On Thursday, Metric headline their second night at the House of Blues, with alt buzz band Joywave opening the show. If you didn't grab tickets, fear not, because there are other shows for your enjoyment. The outspoken and talented Ani DiFranco performs at the Belly Up, which is a pretty big deal since, over the course of her career and tons of records, she's played in much larger venues. Meanwhile, the Casbah goes disco with the talent of Escort, Liquid Stranger rocks Soda Bar, and performer/producer duo Hippie Sabotage play the Observatory.
