Sounds Like San Diego: September 15

Several years ago, I'd heard about this up-and-coming LA band called Local Natives. I reached out directly to the band and booked them for the San Diego Music Thing, only to have them cancel because they had a scheduling conflict. Soon after, they were signed and instantly blew up among indie-rock lovers. In the past year, they surprised San Diego with a secret show at the Belly Up followed by a tiny show at the Casbah, and now they're back with a proper show in a room big enough for more of their fans to enjoy. Unfortunately on the same night, another LA act beloved among San Diegans, Saint Motel, plays at House of Blues. Across town, Porches play the Che Cafe, Wove is at the Casbah, and Guerilla Toss appear at Soda Bar.
