Sounds Like San Diego: July 19

It's an all-stars Friday with smoking concerts around town including, Wiz Khalifa, B-52's, and Comic-Con after parties.



    True story: I once worked a Wiz Khalifa show, and part of his rider included brand new iPads for everyone in his crew. Sure enough, two large boxes arrived, each with a dozen devices. I can only imagine what requests he'll have while headlining the "Under the Influence" tour at Sleep Train Amphitheatre down south in Chula Vista. You can head north to kick off the Del Mar Summer Concert Series kicks with the B-52's performing after the final race. These shows are free with paid track admission, though the price increases dramatically if you arrive after the last race, so you might as well check out the ponies. Other options include the second night of Impose Magazine's Casbah shows, headlined by Sonic Boom; in City Heights there's the last show of the Dissimilars; or get a guaranteed fun night of booty-shaking with the Styletones at Bar Pink.
