Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 12

The Bulbs SD

If you're looking for some fun to kick off Valentine's weekend ...or to kick off a weekend where you care nothing about V-Day, you're in luck, because we have some amazing shows in town. At the Belly Up, Thee Oh Sees return to town, which is always a blast, or you can dig the electronic vibe of the Knocks at the Casbah. In North Park, catch Portland's indie rockers STRFKR or go a little more east to Soda Bar for Mrs. Magician. Tim Pyles hosts Nicely and the Bulbs for the free Mary Jane's Underground show this month at the Hard Rock Hotel, and Shwayze brings the party to Music Box. There's so much to do -- Valentine or not -- that you should make a point of finding some fun.
