Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 20

Nexus, Spear of Destiny, Cannibal Corpse and more headline tonight's live-music options

It's already Wednesday, and with our SoundDiego LIVE shindig tomorrow night, the weekend feels closer than ever -- but for those of you feeling the itch to hit the town tonight, you've got some cool options. For one, Spear of Destiny is making a stop at the Casbah on their North American tour. The post-punk act formed in the early '80s, so bust out the eyeliner and don your best alt-rock look and have some fun. That look, perhaps minus the eyeliner and a little more hairspray, will also suit you for the Decibel Magazine Tour at the Observatory North Park. If you're prone to getting lost, I dare you to wear white and you'll definitely stand out in a sea of black clothes for this night of metal with Cannibal Corpse and others. Catch a local night at the Belly Up with Secret Lynx headlining, try your vox at Deathcab For Karaoke at the Office, or go see our friend Gabriel Sundy with his experimental jazz act Nexus at Whistle Stop.
