Sounds Like San Diego: May 8

My Jerusalem

There aren't a ton of choices tonight, so I'm going make it very easy for you. Get thee to the Tin Can. Tonight's show promises to be nothing short of amazing, as indie supergroup My Jerusalem -- featuring members of Polyphonic Spree, Cursive, Great Northern, Midlake and more -- takes the stage.  I have been listening to this record on repeat since I got my hands on it, and I can only imagine the crazy instrumentation and energy when they pull off their live show oon the tiny Tin Can stage. Michael Kingcaid of What Made Milwaukee Famous (one of my all-time favorite bands!) and Jesse LaMonaca and the Dime Novels round out this bill, so get there early and expect to get to work on Monday with an amazing show afterglow.
