Sounds Like San Diego: May 3

King Tuff shows off a more serious side at the Casbah Thursday

If you were at Wednesday night's Arctic Monkeys show, you can attest that one might want to do anything they can to get their hands on tickets for tonight, however, it's heartbreaking to see so many fans burned by buying fake tickets, so buyer beware. If it's just too much effort, you'll want to go to the Casbah for King Tuff, who has taken a more serious and melancholy turn with his latest record -- which also makes his music more vulnerable and thereby accessible and relatable (read the SoundDiego interview with him here). Meanwhile the Belly Up hosts the return of electronic act Baths which should satiate those of you suffering from Coachella withdrawals. It's a solid night of music all over town, so get out and kick off your weekend on Thursday. Because why not?
