Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 23

Saturday night has some really great offerings around town. The Limousines headline the Casbah, the genre-bending music of the Locust returns after a long hiatus with an all-ages show at Porter's Pub, and Screaming Females delight at Soda Bar, but I'm most excited for the fun indie-pop of Cayucas, who will perform at the Loft at UCSD. The band has come through town a couple times already, and they're phenomenal live, but they'll certainly be on top of their game as they prepare to be direct support for next year's Imagine Dragons headline tour. You've probably heard their hit, "High School Lover," but these are no one-hit wonders, so they're definitely worth the drive to the La Jolla campus. Then you can say you saw them when ...
