Sounds Like San Diego: May 24

Shake Before Us headline a killer all-local lineup at the Ruby Room



    There are so many fun shows this weekend, it doesn't matter where you end up -- you're certain to have a great time. While the Casbah celebrates 30 years of Ugly Things throughout the weekend, great shows abound all over town: Turbonegro hit up House of Blues, and I hear the band's afterparty will be at the Chee Chee Club. Our friends Wild Wild Wets headline at Soda Bar, while Shake Before Us headline a killer all-local lineup at the Ruby Room. Just remember to be safe this Memorial Day weekend and designate a sober driver.
