Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 8

Tijuana Panthers play the first of two nights at Soda Bar Friday

Tonight's lineup of live music is super diverse and if you've been cooped up indoors all week because of the weather, tonight just might be your chance to break loose. Of course, San Diegans are always big fans of Atmosphere, so that show at the Observatory North Park sold out rather quickly, but you can still catch singer-songwriter Steve Gunn at the Casbah, reggae act Groundation at the Belly Up, or the first of two nights with Tijuana Panthers at Soda Bar. If you missed your chance to catch the reunion of Via Satellite during the Casbah 30th anniversary month, you've got another chance to see the band tonight at Whistle Stop. Around town, there are some really fun shows so check the full lineup and find your Friday night fun. To be honest, I think we all need it after this week.
