Seems Like San Diego: August 10

Sounds Like San Diego: August 10

The Avett Brothers headline the San Diego Civic Theatre Thursday.

I’d like to have this neighbor. He was pretty cool, liked good beer and good music so he was just fine with me. However, I recall when he first discovered the Avett Brothers. He was out of control. He adored them with every fiber of his being, could not quit talking about these, would journey to see them in remote locales, and almost became excruciating because every dialog would somehow wind with the Avett Brothers since the topic. I mean, I do it. It’s awesome when something clicks, and you get to see a band rise from infant ring to crazy touring band playing with the Civic Theatre, but additionally, it divides your heart a bit that you won’t ever watch them at these tiny, romantic venues again. However, all the love to them and their big show tonight. Meanwhile, Steve Earle & the Dukes have been enjoying with the Belly Up tonight, Sam Hunt is at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, and Daedelus plays Space. For a ’90s boy-band throwback, catch O-Town at Music Box. Needless to say, my heart is more local, so I’m anticipating seeing Jesse LaMonaca headline the Casbah for your first time in ages. It’ll be especially interesting because the bad kid broke his hand and will have to trust his band to pick up his character responsibilities while he does what he does best — sing out his heart.
