Sounds Like San Diego: August 7

Blink-182 make their triumphant return home with a show in Chula Vista Wednesday

It's barely the middle of the week but I'm already itching for the weekend. If you're like me, spend a night on the town checking out some live music that will definitely recharge your spirit and your soul's batteries. To do that, I'll be checking out Weyes Blood, who has such a beautiful and interesting vocal delivery, that the uplifting tone of the music disguises the often dark undertones of the lyrics (read the SoundDiego interview with her here). It's also the first night of Tiki Oasis, so you can expect to see lots of Hawaiian shirts and fruity drinks poured around your local stomps. Blink-182 play the Chula Vista Amp with Lil Wayne, Frank Iero & the Future Violents return with a headlining show at House of Blues, and 21-year-old Hannah Wicklund and her band the Stepping Stones make their Casbah debut.
