Sounds Like San Diego: May 26



    When you think about the Gaslamp, live music isn't the first thing that comes to mind, but our SoundDiego team is here to change your minds and move your hips as we present another SoundDiego Live party tonight at the Fleetwood. This is our first time at the venue and we imagine it might be your first, too, so we'll ease you in with some hosted drinks and apps, then get you grooving with Illuminauts and Kevin Martin. We've had a great time popping up at venues all over San Diego, and we're going to keep doing it as long as you keep coming out. The bonus is that when our party ends, another begins over at the Hard Rock Hotel, where a new music series kicks off with two of our favorite bands, Grand Tarantula and the Howls. Tim Pyles will be there hosting and it's free, so theoretically you could hit the town without a nickel in your pocket.
