Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 5

Connie Bolger

OK, OK: After a light week of music, it looks like we're back to normal around here. Friday offers up a ton of goodness. At the Casbah, Saintseneca return after the release of their third album late last fall, while Beira brings local doom metal to Soda Bar. The mainstays of the English Beat play a sold-out show at the Belly Up, while Ben Folds tickles the ivories with the San Diego Symphony as his backing band. Meanwhile, Jhene Aiko is at the Observatory, and Six String Outlaws are at the Music Box -- I hear there are some tickets at the respective box office for each. Friday fun is just a workday away.
