Sounds Like San Diego: Oct.15

Oct. 26: Hozier

As we continue this current theme of seemingly endless music, I have to remind you that you don't have to have a lot of money to enjoy this scene. On Thursday, some of San Diego's best musicians are getting together to celebrate the music of Ryan Adams with a show at the Sycamore Den. It's free, but if the Undercover series at the Office is any indication, it will be packed, so get there early to belly up to the bar and enjoy the jams, and wish Kelsey -- a tireless force in the music scene -- a happy birthday. Meanwhile, Listen Local SD hosts All Access Fest at Music Box, and it's only $5, but it can be free if you grab tickets from any of the bands on the lineup. Of course, there are touring acts, too. Jose Gonzalez is sold out at the Belly Up, Deafheaven are sold out at the Casbah, and Hozier takes you to church at the Open Air Theatre.
