Get Local San Diego: July 22



    I don't even know where to start with tonight's recommendations...I mean, between the buzzworthy show at the Casbah, the local americana set at the Whistle Stop, and the heavily rotated radio tunes of Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre's lineup, you're already in over your head. Throw in Comic-Con secret shows, the Boulevard series at the Lafayette Hotel, and plenty of rock bands and DJs to fit whatever you fancy, tonight is certainly going to be a great night in San Diego. Naturally with thousands of out-of-towners here in San Diego, I'd love to reiterate that our local talent is top notch...throw a rock at any of our hot venues and you'll experience some incredible talent.
