Sounds Like San Diego: August 8

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah return to the Casbah Friday night

I don't know if this week of San Diego's live music could ever be beat. As we move into the weekend, it seems the fun never ends. Tonight, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah return to the Casbah and you know it is going to be a killer show, as it's been a few years since we've heard from the band and their new material is proving that they still have the magic. The summer concerts at the track are still in effect, and Steel Pulse is always a huge draw in San Diego, Soda Bar presents the Sidekicks at Che Cafe, and Bar Pink does Dixie with the Euphoria Brass Band. I know a lot of people who will be cramming into Whistle Stop tonight for the return of Sleeping People, so if you're thinking about that show, make sure to get there early.
