Sounds Like San Diego: July 21

Got a case of "the Mondays"? Get out and see some live music tonight

As usual, there's a ton going on tonight -- Burger Records Night at the Hideout has the perfect lineup (with Cool Ghouls, Kids In Heat and Muscle Beech) to breath some life into those intolerable Monday blues. But if experimental music is more your thing, don't miss Kawehi at Soda Bar tonight. A one-woman act that uses various loopers and devices to create a wall of sound to rival any typical four-piece band, she recently got rave reviews for her intriguing cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" (which you can watch here). Can't decide where to go? The good thing is that Soda Bar and the Hideout are mere steps from each other. Check out both!
