Sounds Like San Diego: May 24


The last time I saw Matt Pond PA in San Diego, he was on crutches. Somewhere along his tour, he had broken his foot and was hospitalized. As he conveyed to me, his tourmate, Rocky Votaloto (playing the Casbah on June 9), convinced him to stay on the road, and the rest of the musicians helped load and unload his gear. Humbled but happy to tour, Matt Pond PA seemed to perform better than I'd ever seen that night, and Saturday, a few years later, will no doubt be an awesome show at Soda Bar. Meanwhile, at the Casbah, Baths return with their bedroom-pop stylings. Both shows only have a few tickets left. For another frontrunner of entertainment for your Saturday night, Hellogoodbye and Vacationer perform an all-ages show at the Irenic, which should be a night full of pop goodness.
