Sounds Like San Diego: October 20

Miss Erika Davies

Lots of great music tonight -- hopefully the weather has cleared, because we all know how the city comes to a complete standstill and nobody leaves the house when moisture falls from the sky.

Indie royalty Broken Social Scene appear at the House of Blues with the Sea & Cake, who are also fantastic live. You can catch songstress Miss Erika Davies -- who will headline SoundDiego LIVE next week, Oct. 28, at Analog bar in downtown San Diego -- at the Riviera Supper Club, where you can grill up your own steak while taking in the free set, or you can catch Electric Six down at the Casbah. Other notables are Maren Parusel at Bar Pink, Justin Rodriguez at Tin Can, and Born Ruffians up at the Loft. Lots to do, so grab an umbrella and a scarf, and brave the elements. I don't think your body will go into shock at 66 degrees.
