Sounds Like San Diego: June 3

Broncho heads up a great night of live music in San Diego on Friday

Some nights, I look down a long list of shows and think that we've got some good choices for people in a different demographic than myself, and sometimes I look and legitimately wish I could be in multiple places at the same time. For example, Budos Band is amazing, and the Belly Up will for sure be bumpin' with energy as they play, but then there's Broncho at the Casbah, whose raw punk vibe is infectious. They were here a couple months ago, but I walked in during their encore so I really want to catch a whole set. But the same can be said all the way down the line, with Switchfoot kicking off this year's San Diego County Fair, Bella Novela at Soda Bar, and the goodbye party for Danielle LoPresti at Music Box. Strong choices tonight, so choose wisely, my friends.
