Sounds Like San Diego: July 1

Cat Power returns to San Diego after a multi-year absence

It has been a very long time since Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power, has played San Diego. I definitely know there was a 4th & B show maybe a decade ago, but none others spring to mind, which means that tonight's appearance at the Observatory is extra special. Of course, there are dozens of options, including the first of the Bird Park concert series with the Flim Flam Revue, Cardinal Moon playing an outdoor set at Panama 66 and Liberty Station's new concert series with B-Side Players. At nighttime, the Pynnacles and the Loons bring '60s psychedelia to the Casbah, Radkey wreaks havoc at Soda Bar and the "Bromigo Pop Fest" with Matt Lamkin of the Soft Pack takes over Teros Gallery.
