Sounds Like San Diego: October 6

Mumford & Sons head up Thursday's live-music offerings in San Diego

Tonight has two powerhouse shows and a whole slew of great smaller shows, too. At Sleep Train Amphitheatre, Mumford & Sons are back in town. After a seemingly lengthy tour hiatus, the band is on the road for their third record, which saw them trying to get out of their own Mumfordness. Banjo rock or not, we still love them and with Catfish & the Bottlemen opening, this is going to be a great show. Meanwhile, at the Music Box, Failure celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal album, "Fantastic Planet." As someone who was in high school in the '90s, I embrace all of these reunion shows that seem to be circling through. Around town, Gone Baby Gone gets a dance party shakin' at the Casbah, Herman's Hermits bring back the '60s at Humphreys, and TroyBoi drops some EDM skills at the Observatory North Park.
