Sounds Like San Diego: May 11



    There's so much going on this weekend that it really requires a study of the listings and some tough decisions on how and where to fully enjoy the beautiful San Diego weekend. I think there's no better place than Spanish Landing, where zydeco music is king. Bring your lawn chairs and your family down for this all-day event and enjoy some crawfish while you're there. If you'd rather trade zydeco for beachy rap-rock-reggae vibes, OMBAC and 91x have a music fest down at Mariner's Point. As night sets in, the Donkeys bring their easy-breezy vibe to the Casbah and indie-buzz band PYYRAMIDS play a free show at Bar Pink. It is going to be a very, very good day.
