Sounds Like San Diego: March 14

Blaqk Audio, Stephen Marley and Ark Patrol top Thursday's must-see live shows

It's been a few years since we've heard from Blaqk Audio, the electronic project of AFI's Davey Havok and Jade Puget, but tonight, you can catch them at the Observatory North Park. Their latest record, "Only Things We Love," which dropped last week, is a bit of an ode to some of their favorite '80s sounds from Depeche Mode to Erasure. Meanwhile, we're still in a post-San Diego Music Awards haze, and if you want to see yet more of the elite bands of SD who were nominated, tonight is another chance to do just that. Around town, Stephen Marley plays an acoustic show at the Belly Up, Ark Patrol play Soda Bar, and our buds Western Settings are set to rock Blonde.
