Sounds Like San Diego: December 3



    I really love the holidays and with December finally here, there's something for everyone. Get your evening started at December Nights at Balboa Park with some warm beverages and hot food, and save some energy for the great shows going on around town. You'll wanna wear your cowboy boots for a night of San Diego country featuring John Meeks, Blackout Party, River City and the Western Set, or perhaps you're a little more into Casiotone for the Painfully Alone at Soda Bar. Trap Gold makes their official debut at the Whistle Stop (though they had a test run show at Analog earlier this week). You can support the Park Gallery with a great variety of bands, some punk with the Embalmers over at the Shakedown, and on and on. There's plenty to do tonight, just don't go too hard or you'll miss out on all the good stuff tomorrow.
