Sounds Like San Diego: September 21

Fleet Foxes make a highly anticipated return to San Diego Thursday

When a band as beloved as Fleet Foxes has a six-year hiatus between their second and third records, it isn't surprising that their return to San Diego sold out in minutes. It's definitely one of the hot tickets in town this week, but if you didn't score 'em, you've still got some great live-music options in town. At the Casbah, the power and grace of the small-statured Zola Jesus will have you in awe, while remix specialist RAC plays Music Box. The Wailers return for another sold-out show at the Belly Up and singer-songwriter Andrew Belle plays Space after recently releasing his latest, "Dive Deep," last month. And, not to be left out, is INVSN -- which features Sweden's Dennis Lyxzén of Refused and the International Noise Conspiracy. It's a lot of options for one night but too many good shows is a good problem to have.
