Sounds Like San Diego: March 25

Prince Rama
Rosemary Bystrak

More than a few people I know are wondering if they can manage to see Sunflower Bean at the Che Cafe on Friday and still be at Soda Bar in time for Prince Rama. I don't know if they'll be able to pull it off, but I admire their intentions because both are worthy of your attention this. Sunflower Bean, who have been burning up satellite radio, are a promising young indie act, while Prince Rama is an incredible spectacle -- some locals were able to catch them when they opened for Dan Deacon at the Casbah last year. Meanwhile at the Casbah, faces will get melted by Napalm Death and Melt Banana, Elephant Revival return to town in a headlining slot at the Belly Up, and Teen play a free show at Whistle Stop.
