    Spring time is often accompanied by the traveling bug, and an itch to explore all the corners of the globe. For those too poor to actually pack up their bags and go, the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park offers a consolation — an exhibition through August 1 titled “Wanderers, Travelers and Adventurers.” With over 80 images that capture the feelings and ideas behind globetrotting, the exhibit features works by William Henry Jackson, Josef Koudelka and Samuel Bourne, among others. Tickets are $6. For more information, call (619) 238-7559.

    Wednesday 4/28

    If you can’t make it to see Pinback at Porters Pub on April 29, then check them out when they play at the Casbah. The local favorites began as a side project for members of several local bands in 1998 and eventually turned into the main project when their self-titled debut album took off. A second album, Blue Screen Life, was even more successful — garnering attention outside of San Diego and putting the band at the forefront of popular indie-rock bands. The band’s fluid sound features smooth guitar interplay while soft electronics and vocals float on the surface. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $15. For more information, call (619) 232-4355.
