Sounds Like San Diego: July 12



    I know enough hipster music snobs who will instantly eye roll with any mention of the word bro, even if they're really just a bro in disguise, hiding in skinny jeans. Bro or not, Saturday is the annual Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. The weather has been perfect, and the ocean is warmer than usual, so a free show on the beach is pretty sweet. But mostly we support the event because it's never a bad thing when local boys make big and give back to their community through philanthropy and raising money for charities. This year, the event has partnered with the SIMA Humanitarian Fund, which supports many local charities that make a difference through the use of the ocean, including AccesSurf, Boarding for Breast Cancer, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Life Rolls On and more. You really can't beat that. By night, get ready to party at the House of Blues with La Roux, join Get Back Loretta at the Casbah, or catch the final show ever at AMSD with Led Kaapana.
