Sounds Like San Diego: July 24



    Comic-Con is in full swing, and there are plenty of off-site events for the public on Thursday, including Linkin Park's free show at Petco and the Aquabats 20th Anniversary show at House of Blues, but I would still say it's worth the drive to the Belly Up to catch the Rube Goldberg-loving antics of OK GO. Elsewhere, the Casbah kicks off Four Nights of the Con with Boris, and the North Park Theatre welcomes the steampunk set with a set by Steam Powered Giraffe. Then again, maybe you just want to get away from it all at a fun dance party with Okapi Sun at Bar Pink. So much to do in one night, the choices really are endless.
