OB Mine



    San Diego has been full of all kinds of musical goodness this week, but hopefully it was all just momentum for all that this Saturday has in store for you. From pop stars like Big Time Rush at the San Diego County Fair to the Justin Bieber at Valley View Casino Center to the OB Street Fair to an M-Theory in-store, there's certainly something for everyone. Let's ignore the boys for now, and focus on locals New Mexico, who are celebrating a new release with an all-ages set at M-Theory followed by a headlining spot at Soda Bar. That one's going to be packed, so get there early. Over at the Casbah, Wildcat! Wildcat! return to San Diego with their own show to headline, and if you haven't had the chance, they're certainly worth checking out. I could go on down the line, but ultimately you are in control here, and no matter what your flavor, you'll find it in these Saturday offerings.
