Sounds Like San Diego: April 28



    It seems like just yesterday, but it's already time for another SoundDiego LIVE party! You know the deal: We book some of the best bands in San Diego, make you check out a venue you may have never been to before (it'll be my first time at the Saloon in Encinitas, too) and serve up some tasty free beverages and bites during happy hour in the name of celebrating San Diego music. Tonight, we have two incredible bands performing in Dynamite Walls and FMera. The bad news for some will be that the guest list is full for the event. This is a drive north for a lot of you, but it will be well worth it to check out a place that's been around forever and is just under our noses.
