Sounds Like San Diego: May 25

Ivan & Alyosha bring the swoon to Casbah on Wednesday

I'm staring directly toward the light at the end of the tunnel that is Memorial Day weekend, but we've still got a couple days to go. Fortunately, we can cure the mid-week blues with some great live music in San Diego. Wednesday at the Casbah, the return of Ivan & Alyosha should bring your spirits up, or head to the Observatory where Mayer Hawthorne will have the crowd feeling the groove of his neo-soul sound. At the Belly Up, reggae-fusion Sticky Fingers from Australia bring the party, or you can relieve some punk energy at Soda Bar with Angelic Upstarts. It's gonna be a great night and when it's over, and you've only got a couple days to go before the unofficial start of summer.
