Sounds Like San Diego: September 6

The weekend is finally upon us and there's no better way to kick it off than with Band of Skulls at the Belly Up

It was a short week, but anyone who works a full-time job knows that a holiday weekend only means more work during the work week, so this Friday is especially welcome over here. And the bonus is that Band of Skulls are playing the Belly Up. Early in their career, the rock trio frequented our small clubs, but as they rose, their tours have been fewer and far between, so to see them back at the Solana Beach venue is a definite treat. Around town, the B-Side Players get down with a free concert at Liberty Station, veteran pop-goth act Aesthetic Perfection kick off their tour at the Casbah, and Jerry Paper brings his quirky electronic pop jams to Soda Bar.
