Sounds Like San Diego: October 21

Kero Kero Bonito heads up an incredible night of live music in San Diego on Friday

Kero Kero Benito

I'm so excited for all of the live-music offerings this weekend. Tonight, catch some sugary sweet indie-pop with Kero Kero Bonito at the Voodoo Room of the House of Blues or catch the lovely dream-pop of Wild Nothing at the Music Box. It's gonna get loud at the Irenic with the Dear Hunter's prog rock (not to be confused with the indie rock of Deerhuter), or catch an old favorite with the roots-rock of Diablo Dimes at Bar Pink. The Crawdaddys get down at the Casbah and Dani Bell heads north to Oceanside for a show at the Pour House. That is a whole lot of great show options to kick off a weekend of great music.
