Sounds Like San Diego: January 12

30 seconds to mars

How about a little rock en espanol to get you through your Hump Day? Tonight, Mexico City's Hello Seahorse performs at the Casbah, and if you missed their show at Bar Pink back in August, tonight's your chance for redemption. I promise you won't be disappointed. The band is on the Latin Grammy powerhouse label Nacional Records, so if you're a fan of anybody on its roster, Hello Seahorse should prove to be a new favorite.

Around town, you might wanna catch Jordan Catalano, errr, Jared Leto and 30 Seconds to Mars over at the House of Blues, baseball player Rod Piazza shows off his harp skills up at the Belly Up, and Diane Schuur will blow the lid off of Anthology. Though Analog is relatively new to the live music scene, it's got a solid lineup tonight, too, so there's absolutely no excuse to stay home.
