Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 26

It's an exciting weekend in San Diego, and it's hard to believe it is only February with this incredible summer-like weather we've been having. By day, go enjoy our local beaches, but at night, be ready for some good times. The English Beat play the Belly Up with some frequency, but a show at the Casbah is unprecedented, which is why this show sold out so quickly. The kids should all be heading to the Observatory for a massive punk show with Anti-Flag and Leftover Crack, among others, while anyone looking for a more relaxing and chill kind of night will head to Java Joe's for Tom Brousseau. Meanwhile, Nicki Bluhm is on the road with a stop at the Belly Up while husband Tim Bluhm recovers from a horrendous accident, and locals Sprung Monkey perform at Brick By Brick.
