Sounds Like San Diego: June 5

Friday night is finally here, and while it's been an awesome week, I'm still ready to pounce on the weekend. A the Casbah on Friday, Christopher Owens performs. As the singer of the beloved indie outfit Girls, Owens surprised everyone with a brand new release and is touring on the belief that you haven't forgotten about him. Meanwhile, Soda Bar presents a sold-out show with Dustin Kensrue at the Irenic. If you have tickets to this show, be sure to get there for the awesome support acts, including David Ramirez. Elswhere, KC & the Sunshine Band kicks of the county fair, while at Soda Bar itself, Mrs. Magician and Mr. Tube make for quite a lovely resurrection of bands we thought we wouldn't see again, and Creature and the Woods at the Til Two round out a solid Friday night of music.
