Sounds Like San Diego: August 11

Sam Smith plays Valley View Casino Center on Tuesday

It's a mixed bag this Tuesday night, with Tex-Mex star Joe "King" Carrasco at the Casbah, while the Fink Bombs play Tiki Tuesday at Bar Pink. Amanda X hits Soda Bar, and Radio Halloran has a fun shindig with Smokey Punch at the Merrow. The big news of the night, however, is Sam Smith performing at Valley View Casino Center. His music is inescapable, and you know all about him unless you've been under a rock for the past year. No doubt this will be massive. And not to be outshined, Kevin Costner joins a legacy of actors dabbling in music, or vice versa, depending on how serious they want you to take their music. Expect there to be some serious fans of both his music and films at the Belly Up
