Sounds Like San Diego: September 22

Descendents keep on keepin' on at SOMA on Thursday

I warned you yesterday that this week was going to get crazy with awesome shows all over town and the evidence is right here. Nearly 40 years of rocking brings Descendents to SOMA. Theoretically, you could see three generations of fans rocking out to this one. Meanwhile, Squeeze play a sold-out show at Belly Up. Over at the Irenic, Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance -- who is labelmates with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons -- stops in and Trombone Shorty turns up the heat at Humphreys. The Naked and Famous return to the Observatory, ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead gets freaky at Soda Bar and Federale play the Casbah. If that's not enough, Grupo Fantasma play Music Box and Tom Brousseau celebrates an album release at Java Joe's. Holy smokes. That's some tough choices but the reward is beautiful music no matter where you turn.
