Sounds Like San Diego: August 4

Burt Bacharach performs Sunday with the San Diego Symphony at Summer Pops along the Embarcadero

This Sunday is about as diverse as they come, from One Direction performing at Sleep Train Amphitheatre to Burt Bacharach performing with the San Diego Symphony at Summer Pops. Now, not to disparage boy bands, but Bacharach is a legend, and while he's not for everybody, it might just be one of those bucket-list shows worth catching by the bay. Or maybe this Sunday is about -one of the original boy bands, as Abbey Road celebrates the 50 year anniversary of the Beatles taking the US by storm. If none of that suits your fancy, catch a good old indie-rock show over at Soda Bar.
