Sounds Like San Diego: October 18

The Faint make a long-awaited return to San Diego on Tuesday

I can't be 100 percent sure, but I think the last time the Faint played in town was early 2013 at Fluxx. That is quite some time ago, so no doubt their appearance tonight at the Observatory will have a lot of old fans bobbing and swaying to the indie jams. Meanwhile, Soda Bar welcomes back Screaming Females, and Young the Giant and Ra Ra Riot kick off two nights at House of Blues. Of course, if you prefer your Cheeseburger in paradise, grab a dinghy or kayak and make way to the water to hear the sold-out Jimmy Buffet show at Humphreys. That's plenty of shows to keep you rocking out this Tuesday night, and the week only gets better.
