Sounds Like San Diego: August 31

It's no secret around here that we love Everest. Over the past few years, it's felt like the band has adopted San Diego as its second home, with Casbah residencies, and appearances at the Belly Up and Rocktoberfest. On Saturday, they will return to the Casbah with a killer lineup that will bring on that concert sweat that feels exhilarating. Of course, there are plenty of other options, including the lovely Scout Niblett at Tin Can (read our preview here), Mrs. Magician at the House of Blues and Awesome Fest at Soda Bar and the Void. If you want to get off the beaten path, Black Cat has a stellar lineup and will be a cool little escape from the usual.
