Sounds Like San Diego: April 10

Hills Like Elephants head up a long list of live music options for Friday night

Hills Like Elephants SXSW

The first weekend of Coachella is finally here, which means you're on your way to Indio, or like me, you're planning a big weekend of tuning into performances on satellite radio while enjoying the comforts of home. While that's all happening, the San Diego music scene is still alive, like with tonight's sold-out Andrew Jackson Jihad show at the Irenic or with the Hills Like Elephants CD Release Party at the Casbah. There's also a full-on party with the Downs Family at Bar Pink, and the English Beat play another of their back-to-back shows at the Belly Up.
