Sounds Like San Diego: May 17


Sunday Funday is here and after all of the weekend excitement, it might be hard to muster up the energy to hit the town, but you'll be aurally rewarded if you so choose. The Observatory North Park kicks off three consecutive sold-out shows with Passion Pit who will be joined by Coin. The Merrow hosts a "Tribute to B.B. King" with members of the Silent Comedy, Howlin' Rain, the Midnight Pine and others joining in, while the Belly Up hosts Nellie McKay. My recommendation, however, is Hutch and Kathy at Soda Bar. This is two-thirds of the Thermals, so expect a frenetic and fun set of music. If your're feeling adventurous, the Meteors set sonic fire to Brick By Brick.
