Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 19

The Silent Comedy, Maggie Rogers, Metalachi and more have all your live-music bases covered Friday

John Hancock

If you're a San Diegan who has been into the local scene for some time, you've certainly missed and noticed the absence of the Silent Comedy. Since co-frontman Joshua Zimmerman moved to New York and other members became dads, we don't get to see them often enough, so it should come as no surprise that their show at the Casbah is completely sold out. We hope that a new record (read out about it here) could mean more San Diego dates in the near future, but we can't be certain. Another sold-out show in town is with relative newcomer Maggie Rogers, who left us so impressed when she sold out the Irenic last year that it was only a matter of time before she moved into larger venues. If you didn't grab your tickets to either of those, your best bet tonight is to catch Devon Welsh (formerly of Majical Cloudz) at Soda Bar or our favorite mariachi metal band, Metalachi, at Belly Up.
