Sounds Like San Diego: June 8

Maps & Atlases head up your Friday night concert options -- although you've got some tough choices

Maps and Atlases

When this week started, I told you it was going to be a doozy, and tonight is evidence of that. I'm all in on Maps & Atlases who are playing at the Casbah. I used to really love the math-rock of the Chicago band's earliest material, and they were always super cool and gracious to their fans. It's been some time since they've been around town, so I'm particularly excited about this show. Meanwhile, House of Blues is welcoming Minus the Bear, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of "Planet of Ice," the band's third and perhaps most accessible record. Around town, locals B-Side Players get down at the Belly Up, singer-songwriter Griffin House returns to Soda Bar, and "Mmm-bop" brothers Hanson are all grown up at the County Fair.
