Sounds Like San Diego: July 20



    It may only be Wednesday, but I already have that weekend buzz feeling with all of this week's excitement. From ComicCon to Opening Day at the races to America's Finest Beer Festival happening this weekend, you might be all booked, but there's still great music happening all over town. Over at the House of Blues, Alkaline Trio return to rock faces, while Wallpaper and Hood Internet are sure to get booties shaking at the Casbah. Honorary San Diegans Fitz and the Tantrums return for a sold out show at Birch Aquarium, while The Ferocious Few turn it up a notch at Bar Pink. Go enjoy the races or preview night, but save your late night for some great live music.
