It's party time Friday night as SoundDiego LIVE hits U-31 with Mariachi El Bronx, Pounded by the Surf and Shady Francos. I’ll be hosting the festivities -- you'll need to be on the list to get in, and even then you will want to get there early to get in.

Later that night, Club Sabbat at Numb3rs takes over the front room with DJs Liquid Grey and Diskdroid; Adrian Lux and Rebecca & Fiona take over Bassmnt; Booty Bassment is at the Whistle Stop; Bass Tribe takes over the Kava Lounge; and Treasure Fingers hits Bang Bang.
