Sounds Like San Diego: May 10

It feels like ages since We Are Scientists have come through town, so I'm really excited to see the band back at the Casbah after all this time (read our interview with the band here). The long-awaited new record TV en Francais is getting rave reviews stateside and is being embraced enthusiastically in Europe as well. The band rocks, and this will certainly be a great way to spend your Saturday night. Around town, Survival Knife headline at Soda Bar, Ghetto Blaster shred the Tin Can, and Roger Clyne returns to the Belly Up.
