Sounds Like San Diego: February 14

Sunday's quite the Valentine's Day gift when it comes to live music -- if you can get tickets

So today is Valentine's Day and if you're lucky, you've got a holiday from work tomorrow. The bad news is that if you didn't plan ahead, you might have some trouble finding places to eat and shows to see tonight. Built To Spill is sold out tonight and tomorrow, Logic is sold out at SOMA, Citizen Cope is sold out at Music Box and Beats Antique is sold out at the Observatory. I was actually kind of excited to see that Christopher Cross is playing at Sycuan, because who better on Valentine's Day than a mainstay of "Delilah" and KyXy Love Songs, but even his show is sold out. So, if you want to get romantic tonight, head to Dizzy's in Pacific Beach where you can catch a tribute to Pops and Ella, or avoid the romance altogether with the Valentine's Day FIasco at Tower Bar, the Roaring 420s are at Soda Bar, and for the dance crowd, LED takes over Valley View Casino Center.
