Sounds Like San Diego: July 7

Rise Against join Deftones at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre Friday for a one-two hard rock punch

Did you ever notice that the short weeks don't seem to lower your work load? That, in fact, you have the same amount or more work in just a shorter amount of time, so the actual weekend just can't come soon enough. Tonight, Mattress Firm Amphitheatre will be the site of some serious rocking out as Rise Against and Deftones co-headline the shed. Thrice and Frank Iero are also super awesome, so get there early to get the most music bang for your buck. Still, I prefer my little shows with up and comers, which is why I can't wait to catch teen indie-rockers the Regrettes who, I've been told, are all LA School of Rock alumni. The Casbah welcomes Thee Commons, the Amandas come out for one of their rare Whistle Stop shows, and Phoenix rockers Anarbor play Soda Bar.
