Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 27

Stereogum recently named Julien Baker an Artist of the Year, and her debut, "Sprained Ankle," Album of the Year. They gushed about Baker being all of 20 and being a "phenom," and it's true: Her album is beautiful, deep and heartbreaking. There's been a staff shakeup at the Irenic, but the shows will go on -- at least for now -- so enjoy the space while you can. Meanwhile, there are great shows all over town. Joyce Manor and Andrew Jackson Jihad are playing at the Observatory, the Stone Foxes are at the Casbah (read our interview HERE), Diane Coffee is nearly sold out at the Hideout, and teen heartthrob Cody Lovaas plays an early afternoon show at the Carlsbad Library.
