Sounds Like San Diego: August 8

Buddy Guy -- who's probably still holding a note from his last SD show -- headlines Escondido Thursday

The variety and options for music tonight are varied and abundant, so you should have no problem finding something to love. Tiki Oasis continues at the Crown Plaza Hotel, but I'd bet that the Tiki-heads might take a field trip to catch the Surfrajettes, Jason Lee & the Riptides and others at the Casbah, while lovers of the blues head north to California Center for the Arts, Escondido to see legends Buddy Guy, Jimmy Vaughn and Charlie Musselwhite. Pop princess Carly Rae Jepson plays at Humphreys, Canadian boy band Prettymuch play the Open Air Theatre, and LA's genre-agnostic Beach Bums play Soda Bar.
