Sounds Like San Diego: April 20

The Big Pink rock an indie-dance party at Soda Bar Wednesday

This week has been amazing for music -- if it doesn't lead to the death of me. Wednesday night the music rages on with a sold-out Wild Nothing show at the Casbah and a sold-out show with the Arcs at the Observatory. If you didn't score tickets, you can still head to the Hideout for Blackbird Blackbird and Chad Valley, or go to Soda Bar for a biggger-than-life performance by the Big Pink, whose single "Dominoes" a couple years back put them on the map of indie dance music.
