Sounds Like San Diego: July 18

Toad the Wet Sprocket headline the first of two nights at the Belly Up Wednesday


When I graduated high school, my girlfriends and I packed up a borrowed Volvo wagon, and headed up the California coast. We were taking a friend to Berkeley and opted for the scenic route. Toad the Wet Sprocket's "Dulcinea" was just released, and it became our roadtrip soundtrack. Over the years, the band has been relegated to adult contemporary radio, but their vast catalog is highly underrated and too often overlooked. Tonight the band plays the first of two nights at the Belly Up and tomorrow is already sold out, so you might want to make the effort to be at tonight's show. Around town, the Fixx play the Green Flash Concert Series; Hey! Ho! Lets Go! return for their monthly night at Bar Pink; and Holy Wave play the Whistle Stop.
