Sounds Like San Diego: December 5

There aren't a lot of choices this Sunday night, but the ones that we have are excellent. Passion Pit haven't been here in a while, but they always bring a raukous show and for the all ages crowd at Soma, this is surely the show to see. As a bonus, Mister Heavenly is opening with new member and Scott Pilgrim actor Michael Cera, and everyone loves a celebrity musician, right? You can also catch The Greenhornes over at the Casbah, or for Frank Zappa lovers, check out his son, Dweezil, in his tribute show to his legendary dad over at the House of Blues.
