Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 9

A sunny day for FM 949's Indie Jam with Portugal. The Man and more

Sometimes, it can be hard to see such misery in the news -- hurricanes and earthquakes and evacuations -- and not feel a bit of guilt that things are pretty good in San Diego right now. Today in Oceanside, Indie Jam hosts a bevy of alt-rock and indie artists like Portugal. The Man, Misterwives, Sir Sly and more that are sure to make for a great night. Meanwhile, the San Diego Blues Fest is at the Embarcadero headlined by legend Mavis Staples. South Bay celebrates Pride by the bay, Big Bloom and the Loons get garagey at Casbah and Music Box hosts a benefit for Houston with Frankie J, B-Side Players and more. Both the Verite show at Soda Bar and Vallis Alps show at Space are nearly sold out, so you might want to get tickets online in advance if you still can.
