Sounds Like San Diego: September 18

The Distillers are back in town at a much larger venue this time around -- the Observatory North Park

When the Distillers got together to play a show at the Casbah, it wasn't any surprise that the show sold out in minutes. The concert was amazing and so again, no surprise that their Observatory North Park show tonight is also completely sold out. After all, it was over a decade since their last tour and their new music is the first they've released in over 15 years. Obviously their fans never disappeared and are hungry to reconnect. If you didn't score tickets, Bryan John Appleby returns to town with a show at Soda Bar, La Ley frontman Beto Cuevas performs at House of Blues, and Carbon Leaf play Winston's. For smooth jazz fans, Kenny G is at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay.
