Sounds Like San Diego: Jan. 29

T. Loper

Let's rejoice, as the weekend is finally here. Hopefully you're online early to get your tickets to some of the amazing shows coming to town around Coachella dates. After you've furiously refreshed your browsers, get ready for the night. If you need, you can dance you're ass off at the Casbah with Chicago's Hood Internet, or if you're one of the people who jumped early, Bryson Tiller plays to a sold-out crowd at the Observatory. Our friends in the New Kinetics and the Nervous Wreckords will bring a party to Soda Bar -- and bring your bunny ears as Joshua Tree's Jessica Von Rabbit opens the show. The Belly Up has G. Love & Special Sauce, and Kabbs celebrate a record release at the Whistle Stop. That's a lot to choose from to really kick off the weekend in high gear.
