Sounds Like San Diego: June 12

Birdy Bardot
Birdy Bardot

Hooray for Friday nights jam-packed with great music. Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah are on a 10-year anniversary tour, but that show is sold out, so you'll have to look elsewhere if you didn't snag tickets. A rare and no doubt awesome night is in store for anyone who ventures to the Ould Sod for the early '90s San Diego band the Macananys, while our own Tim Pyles hosts Mary Jane's Underground on a new night at the Hard Rock Hotel. Birdy Bardot have been the talk of the town since the band's recent debut, so catch them at the Balboa. If a big show is what you seek, Ingrid Michaelson returns to Humphrey's, and our mota-loving friends of Marujah celebrate their CD release at the Ken Club.
