The Donkeys Kick Off RSD

The Donkeys celebrate Record Store Day with an in-store at M-Theory Records



    Today is the kind of day that gets me really excited for summer. It's Record Store Day (read our run-down here), Chicano Park has a festival, Griffen Park in La Mesa hosts the Spring Harp Fest and CityBeat has the Festival of Beers. It makes me look forward to all the fun daytime festivals that summer offers, but today should definitely keep you busy. By night, of course, there's fun to be had too, with the sold-out Caravan Palace show at the Belly Up, Colleen Green performing at the Hideout (after having to cancel on the grand opening), and the Soul Clap Dance Off at the Casbah -- which should be a hoot with a panel of local musicians as judges for this unique concept. There's no excuse not to stumble into a good time today, whether by day or by night. Make it both.
