Sounds Like San Diego: July 29

New wave king of the hill Adam Ant is at Humphreys on Sunday night

When I was growing up, my older cousin was obsessed with Adam Ant. She'd come to our house with one dangly earring, her hair dyed black, wristbands, black layered clothes and hair styled with far too much gel. Eventually she moved far away and I don't see her as much, but I can never hear Adam Ant without thinking of her. Last year, he played the Observatory and the buzz after the show was hard to avoid, so you might want to make sure you're at Humphreys when he returns tonight. Around San Diego, krautrock legends Faust play at the Casbah, Soda Bar brings doom to your ears with the Body, and 311 and the Offspring co-headline Mattress Firm Amphitheatre.
