Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 19

Lucius bring the sweet '60s to the Belly Up

Music is amazing, but it can also be heartbreaking. I have plenty of friends who, if given the chance, would be in multiple places at the same time tonight, but pulling a multi-show night is complicated. So tonight, pick one and be stoked that we have so many amazing choices. The lovely and talented Lucius are returning for their fourth time to San Diego, and their performance gets better each time. They'll be at the Belly Up with the Cactus Blossoms. Meanwhile, at Poway Center for the Arts, Neko Case, whose solo career is as prolific as her band the New Pornographers, will impress and mesmerize as she always does. Then, there's the sold out Gogol Bordello show at the Observatory, Slow Club and Red Pony Clock are at Soda Bar and Moon Hooch will wow at Music Box. This is the kind of night I'd expect in summer, so get out and enjoy it before the holidays suck the touring life out of your favorite artists.
