Sounds Like San Diego: July 18

Natalie Merchant makes a rare appearance in San Diego Tuesday

Do you have bucket-list bands? Like, there's musicians you've always loved but have never had the opportunity to see live? For me, R.E.M. and 10,000 Maniacs sit firmly at the top of that list. And I know 10,000 Maniacs is touring, but without Natalie Merchant, I just don't really feel like it's the same. All this to say that I can't believe I'm going to finally get to see Natalie Merchant when she plays in San Diego tonight at Symphony Hall. I understand there are tickets still available so you should definitely consider catching her on this super-rare tour. Of course, this town has a lot of great options, so for the face-melt of the week, catch the Sword at the Belly Up, Austin's rootsy Uncle Lucius is playing at Soda Bar, and, in a bizarre move, Khalid plays at House of Blues before playing a sold-out show at the Observatory tomorrow.
