Sounds Like San Diego: July 14



    There is so much to do on Saturday that I'm going to be as vague and nonspecific as possible. I mean, you probably already know that the Casbah has been hosting some Comic-Con shows and Satuday's might be an interesting clash of geeks vs. hipsters. Josh Damigo is playing his monthly Friends With Benefits show at Lestat's, Shearwater return to San Diego with a show at Soda Bar, and the Griffin hosts Band of Heathens. Of course, there are plenty of Con-related events and parties around town, too, so get out and enjoy the awesome things this city has to offer.
