Sounds Like San Diego: May 26

Your nostalgia binge continues at Soda Bar with the Posies

I have just been on a nostalgia binge lately with bands like Nada Surf, Trash Can Sinatras and even MGMT all playing some of their seminal records, and tonight at Soda Bar, it's one more with the Posies. They're celebrating 30 years and I cannot wait to hear those luscious harmonies in person. Meanwhile, Kimbra is back in town with Son Lux, playing a sold-out show at Belly Up, Casbah hosts a dance party with DJ Lazer Lizeth, and the Glitch Mob play a sold-out show at the Observatory.
