Sounds Like San Diego: January 17

DNCE -- Joe Jonas' band -- heads up an eclectic night of mostly local options for live music

Local music rules the night tonight as Jovi & the Issues make their Casbah debut. The band features members of the Mice, Death Crisis, Zombie Barbie, the Misfiends and Dogmatic. At Soda Bar, brother and sister indie duo Many a Moon bring performance art and eclectic music, and the Merrow has Hardly Human at the head of their local lineup. Of course, there are some touring acts, too, like veteran David Lindley at the Belly Up or DNCE -- Joe Jonas' band -- at House of Blues. If your resolution was to discover something new this year, tonight just might be your night.
