I just have to plug one of my most favorite bands The National, not only because their music is AWESOME, but they are also coming to San Diego on May 23, 2010!!!
If you haven't seen them before now is the time, they don't tour very often. We caught them at Street Scene in 08 and it was one of the best shows I saw all year. This time they are playing at Spreckles Theater downtown, not my favorite venue in town, but at least it has cool ambiance. Should be a great show!
Tickets available through Ticketmaster.
