Sounds Like San Diego: October 19

Odesza headline Valley View Casino Center Thursday -- and it's just the tip of the live-music iceberg

I'm so excited about tonight's show with the Bronx that I can hardly contain myself. I love Mariachi el Bronx, too, but the raw energy of the Bronx takes me back to my high school hardcore days and later, seeing the band in the beginning of their career at Beauty Bar. The show is sold out, however, so you'll have to find a backup plan if you're not holding tickets already. Odesza has been blowing up the charts and can be found tonight at Valley View Casino Center, while Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie play Humphreys. Aussie-bred performer and hearthrob Cody Simpson plays an all-ages show at the Irenic and Mom Jeans play in the Annex, with a separate gated Irenic entrance so the two shows won't intermingle. Lastly, Mastodon, aka white walkers from "Game of Thrones," returns to bring metal to your life at House of Blues.
