Sounds Like San Diego: October 10

Swervedriver bring their beloved shoegaze through Casbah for an intimate show Thursday

This week has already been quite astounding with the choices for shows, and tonight is no exception. I'm personally looking forward to the return of shoegaze legend Adam Franklin and his band Swervedriver, and I suspect the show at the Casbah will be a bit of a reunion of all the old-school shoegaze lovers who frequented shows more often 10 or 15 years ago. The Magnolia is back tonight with Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers, because maybe the Range wasn't adequately noisy? The amazing vocals of Sebastian Bach will be heard at Ramona Mainstage, and Too Many Zooz play the Belly Up. That's a lot of shows and not the only ones, so check the list and find the thing that brings music to your ears.
