Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 22

On Wednesday, FM 94/9 celebrates 12 years by bringing Bear Hands to North Park Theatre, while Sinkane gets at the Casbah, Tinariwen at Belly Up and more

There are so many killer shows tonight in San Diego, it's hard to pick just one. However, we love our radio partners here, and FM 94/9 has been really good to us, so we'd like to say happy birthday to them as they celebrate their 12th anniversary. They joined up with Car2Go (also celebrating an anniversary -- three years) to bring a killer show to the North Park Theatre with Bear Hands and Fences. The tickets are cheap, and it is going to be a really fun and celebratory night, so be sure to drop by. Up at the Belly Up, Tinariwen, a Grammy award winning group from the Sahara Desert region of Mali, return to expand your mind, while at the Casbah, Sinkane invite you out of your comfort zone with a blend of diverse influences, from Sudanese pop to krautrock to free jazz and funk. These are just a couple of ways to make your Wednesday really count, but there's plenty more including the sold-out Erasure show at Humphrey's and indie rockers Allo Darlin' at Soda Bar. Tonight's a night you definitely want to leave the couch behind.
