Suzanne Vega stops in to the Belly Up tonight -- amid a flurry of great Sunday shows

    Everybody loves a three day weekend and there's nothing better than a Sunday night of music without Monday morning obligations. Down at the Casbah, everyone is ready to be amazed by Sohn, with mesmerizing tracks and vocals to match, but this one is sold out -- so if you didn't grab a ticket, consider your other options, like the return of the Mustache Party at El Dorado with the Silent Comedy. Don't expect a band performance, but definitely expect a good time. Meanwhile, at the Belly Up, you can catch music legend Suzanne Vega. I had the chance to see her at UCSD's the Loft awhile back and her meticulous talent for crafting songs goes far beyond "Tom's Diner." No matter what your flavor tonight, be safe and enjoy the defacto kickoff to summer -- even if the official solstice is still a few weeks away.
