It’s Memorial Day weekend in San Diego and the unofficial start of summer. In between your BBQs and beach time definitely make room for all of the non-stop party action.
On Friday night, Feel the Noise features Slpwlkrs and Memory Lounge live plus DJs Gabe Vega, Adam Salter, Saul Q and Bob Dazzla at the new Kitty Diamond (formerly the Flame). Your info is here.

Saturday night, Club Sabbat invades the front room and attached patio of Numb3rs in Hillcrest. Ladnoir and I will spin everything from Darkwave to EBM to Industrial throughout the night.
