Sounds Like San Diego: May 12

Matt Pryor headlines the Casbah in a jam-packed night of live music in San Diego

Matt Pryor

If you've been laying low this week, tonight is calling your name because there are great shows all over town. Don't be surprised if a full-on dance-off goes down at the Belly Up when Com Truise hits the stage, but insiders are saying that opening act, Clark, is not to be missed. Meanwhile at the Casbah, Matt Pryor of the Get Up Kids and Dan Andriano of Alkaline Trio take the stage while Timber Timbre play a sold-out show at Soda Bar. The Whistle Stop will be packed to the brim with the Creepy Creeps and Channel 933 presents their summer kick-off show at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre. It'll be hard to choose but there's definitely something for everyone in San Diego tonight.
