Sounds Like San Diego: July 19



    A lot of big-name acts and outdoor events fill the calendar this Saturday. Pride takes over Marston Point -- the west side of Balboa Park -- with entertainment all day long, Hess Fest takes over Grim Avenue between University and North Park Way, and something called Bravefest, which appears to be acts that are mostly "internet famous," takes over Qualcomm Stadium. Regular venues are on fire, too, with the Dwarves and the Queers back for Night 2 at Soda Bar, Bob Log III -- the one-man percussion powerhouse who generally sings inside a miked motorcycle helmet -- performs at the Casbah, and lovers of Bob Marley's "Legend" can hear the full album performed by the Wailers at the Junior Seau Amphitheatre at the Oceanside Pier. Even the casinos are in on the music action, with '90s throwbacks performing at Harrah's Resort Southern California. It's a good day to find your passion and enjoy the fun, with events all over town.
