Sounds Like San Diego: October 19

Tegan and Sara celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their beloved album "The Con"

If you ever get a chance to meet Tegan and Sara, you should definitely take it. They're honestly two of the nicest people in music and they genuinely love their fans. It's a little bit of a shame that they're playing at the seated Balboa Theatre, because their stand-out performances will likely have the crowd on their feet the majority of the night. Meanwhile, you have no choice but to stand when you check out Joyce Manor and Wavves co-headlining SOMA for an all-ages show, or when you check out the return of Mister Heavenly at Casbah. Cotton Jones' Michael Nau plays Soda Bar and industrial trailblazers KMFDM are at the House of Blues.
