Sounds Like San Diego: May 19

There are some seriously great shows on Tuesday night that makes it hard to believe it's so early in the week. At the Observatory, Glass Animals perform to a sold-out crowd after their recent performances at Coachella. The Oxford band released their debut last summer and sold out their Observatory show in record time, which was a little surprising to me because they're not exactly a commercial radio act, but they're awesome nonetheless, and I for one am really excited for the show. Meanwhile at Soda Bar, Massachusetts band Speedy Ortiz return to San Diego. Great writing chops and strong female-fronted vocals make this a definite must-see band. Casbah keeps it local with Bang Pow, and Seven Grand and the Hideout offer cool lineups -- even Bar Pink gets into the live music mix tonight.
