Sounds Like San Diego: August 16

Friday's live music scene includes the funky Styletones with SDMA-nominated drummer, Jake Najor at Bar Pink.



    The Styletones are playing at Bar Pink and they throw one of the most fun dance parties to get in on -- it's actually impossible to have a bad time when they're performing. The San Diego Music Awards are around the corner and this seems like as good a time to mention open voting as any. The reason to mention the music awards is because Jake Najor will be on the kit, who's part of three separate nominated acts that are nominated in four categories. In fact, he also performed drums on "Mercy," the new track from TV on the Radio, which is blowing up on the charts. So the guy is a machine. And you can see him -- for free -- seems like a no-brainer for a Friday night.
