Sounds Like San Diego: July 18



    As I've been saying all week, the music scene in San Diego is on fire. There are so many shows, events and awesomeness all over the city. It's Pride weekend, so it's a great time to show your support of the diversity of San Diego, but also remember that there will be thousands of people out and about, so give yourself extra time to get to your destinations and expect incresed traffic wherever you might roam. The Casbah is sold out on Friday, with a special performance by Pinback, but fret not if you didn't get tickets, because they're going on tour and will be back at the House of Blues in October. Racing season started on Thursday, and the Summer Concert Series kicks of with Jurassic 5. Soda Bar hosts the first of two nights with the Queers and the Dwarves, Craft Spells perform at the Hideout, and, of course, the Pride of Hillcrest Block Party kicks off on Friday as well. So much to do, so many choices, but save some energy for the rest of this chock-ful weekend.
