Sounds Like San Diego: November 8

Peter Hook & the Light head up a special election night of live music

Janitors rally 4.29.16

I was pretty excited when I heard that Bush was coming to the Observatory North Park. The band hasn't played San Diego in ages, and it seems like a good diversion after you hit the polls, but then I found out not only is Peter Hook & the Light playing House of Blues, but they're playing Joy Division's "Unknown Pleasures" and New Order's "Substance," which is pretty amazing. Either show will be great, but the latter shaped my youth so I know where I'll be. Around town, Nina Diaz will appear at Soda Bar, Astronautalis bring a party to Casbah, and Secret Samarai play Tiki Tuesday at Bar Pink. Happy voting!
