Sounds Like San Diego: November 14

Hovvdy, Built to Spill, Strung Out, and Nahko and Medicine for the People top Thursday's concert options

Bronwyn Walls

The weekend is so close I can almost taste it! Until then, let's catch some of the awesome shows in San Diego. For anyone looking for a free show, Seaport Sessions are really fun and Tori Roze & the Hot Mess are leading the party this evening. Built to Spill and Nahko and Medicine fo the People are both sold out, but for nighttime shows, consider Jonathan Bree at Soda Bar, catch a punk show with Strung Out at SOMA Sidestage, or catch up-and-coming Hovvdy at the intimate Space before they surely break through as indie-rock's next big thing.
