Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 12

We Were Promised Jetpacks, Dream Wife, and Fitz & the Tantrums play San Diego Friday

Wow, Friday night -- you sure do know how to bring it. There are some incredible shows in town, so get those disco naps in early and be ready to hit the town. We Were Promised Jetpacks return to the Irenic for an all-ages show, being the second Scottish band in town this week. You can expect it to be a great night of sweaty fun. Meanwhile, the powerful ladies of Dream Wife drop into the Casbah, psychedelic garage-rockers the Jackets headline Soda Bar, and classic-rock act Starship play Poway OnStage. We should also mention that our buddies Fitz & the Tantrums are in town, but you already know that because it's already sold out. If tonight is any indication, we are definitely in for an amazing weekend.
