Sounds Like San Diego: July 5

The Melvins sludge their way through the Casbah Wednesday

With the holiday behind us, let's get into the rest of the music, shall we? Of course, the hot ticket tonight is for the Melvins at Casbah (check out the SoundDiego interview with them here). Everyone knows they tend to come once or twice a year and every single time they sell out, so I don't know why it always comes as such a surprise when tickets are gone, but such is the case for tonight. Good thing you have other solid options, like rockabilly goddess Rosie Flores -- a San Diego native -- who comes to play Soda Bar, Froth bring pyschedelic dream-pop to Space, LA band Spirit In the Room headline the Merrow, and PRXZM playing a free show at House of Blues.
