Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 4

San Diegans love their positive, laid-back vibes, and nobody fits that description more than Citizen Cope, who appears on Sunday at the Observatory with a full band -- and don't get it twisted; Citizen Cope was rocking the man-bun before it was a thing. If you're a fan of Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and Bob Marley, you can rest assured Citizen Cope will speak to you. Around town, the Dylanesque vocals and jangly guitars of Hollis Brown will be a treat at Soda Bar, while classic rockers Queensryche perform at House of Blues. For a special night, head to Sycamore Den for an all-female craft-cocktail contest with the music of Lady Parts to entertain.
