Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 10

There are some pretty great shows in town on Friday, including a sold-out appearance by Dawes at the Casbah. The L.A. band came out strong with their debut, then a critically acclaimed follow-up, and there's no doubt they could've played somewhere bigger but opted for a small club show. Meanwhile, the Open Air Theatre hosts Lorde, who you might have heard made a huge splash with her debut. Be sure to get there early for Majical Cloudz, who just might blow you away. The Hideout hosts Tacocat, Drowners appear at Soda Bar, and the Soul Club gets down and gets you dancing at the Whistle Stop.
