Sounds Like San Diego: July 27

Bush top a night of nostalgia around town with a headlining show at SDSU's Open Air Theatre

Pick a decade and you've got some music for everyone tonight. Bush mostly came up in the '90s and tonight you can catch them at the Open Air Theatre, or catch Love and Rockets and Bauhaus veteran of the gothic scene David J at the Casbah. Another '80s treat, Psychedelic Furs, get "Pretty In Pink" at Sycuan and Lionel Richie parties "All Night Long" at Viejas Arena with pop diva Mariah Carey. Around town, Soft Lions and Emily Bell play Bar Pink, Imagery Machine play Soda Bar, and Reckless Kelly headline the Belly Up.
