Sounds Like San Diego: November 13

Frankie Cosmos headline an all-ages show at the Che Cafe Wednesday

So much music, so little time. There are a lot of shows tonight that should grab your attention, and they're not all sold out at the Casbah. You know the deal with Built to Spill, so instead let's talk about the rest of the awesome options, OK? Starting at Soda Bar, you've got mid-'90s metalcore stalwarts Cave In, and if that's your scene, people have been going kinda crazy over their shows on social media as the tour has been picking up steam and heading our way. Meanwhile, Frankie Cosmos keep things real at the Che Cafe with frontwoman Greta Kline now an experienced vet of the DIY scene; Keuning, formerly of the Killers, is headlining a show at the House of Blues Voodoo Room; and Hours feature our pal Carrie Gillespie Feller of Hexa at Whistle Stop. If you're a musician and looking to shake things up, head to Bar Pink for another Rock Lotto where your new band is drawn from a hat and given a project to play together live in a month. It's fun and you just might find your future bandmates! Get out this Wednesday and find your musical calling.
