Sounds Like San Diego: October 16



    Who says block parties and festivals belong to Saturday? Today you can catch some great live music at the Children's Museum Block Party or head on over to Hillcrest for the first ever Hillcrest Hoedown with the Heavy Guilt playing a headlining slot at the Ruby Room. By nightfall, take your pick of Zee Avi at the Loft at UCSD, Zodiac Death Valley at El Dorado or -- if you're lucky enough to have prepurchased tickets -- the Naked and Famous will dominate at the Belly Up. For those of you who love your "Bubbly," Colbie Caillat is at Humphreys Concerts By the Bay
