Sounds Like San Diego: May 7-8



    It's another Rumble weekend in San Diego, which means another great indie show at Bar Pink, and it's not gonna cost you a cent. Longstay, the Fling and Gun Runner are gonna bring it tonight.  Just be sure to get there early or you're gonna be stuck in line with their one-out, one-in policy. If that doesn't suit your fancy, Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis shows his quieter side tonight at the Casbah, The Raveonettes rock the Belly Up, and Kristeen Young takes on Porter's Pub with Republic of Letters.
