Sounds Like San Diego: May 10



    I don't know about you, but I sure am ready for the weekend. I hope to get some sleeping in this weekend, but only after I kick off my Friday with some killer music. You can celebrate a summer kickoff party at the Lafayette Hotel featuring everything you could expect at a tiki pool party and beyond, because most pool parties don't have the lounge version of the Creepy Creeps (known as Creepxotica) show up. Sounds like a fun party, without any requirement to get in the pool. Friday also kicks off Gator By the Bay, the annual Zydeco festival at Spanish Landing. Other options include an early acoustic show with Unwritten Law at the Casbah, a late night "bear" party with Bob Mould acting as music selector at the Casbah and two San Diego greats -- Hills Like Elephants along with newcomers Bulletins -- rounding off a Pussy Galore lineup with Robin Roth. I really can't say how good we've got it here in this city. This weekend, I plan to take that for granted.
