Sounds Like San Diego: June 29

The weekend is here, though many of you kicked it off last night at our best SoundDiego Live party to date. Keep the party going with some of the great live music in town on Friday. For those of you who missed their show in April, Squeeze is back in town, this time with the B-52's so you can enjoy some '80s nostalgia. A little closer to home, the Soft Pack and Heavy Hawaii perform at the Belly Up, The Homeless Sexuals replace the canceled Madi Diaz show at Soda Bar, Friends hit the Casbah, and Shady Maples -- described as "Dead Feather Moon's alter-ego" -- perform at the Griffin.
