Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 16



    Padres Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman Finds his Dream Team

    Echosmith provide musical support on Friday for 21 Pilots.

    The weekend is finally here, which means the only difference is that you get to sleep in after a night out. Kicking things off Friday are 21 Pilots, who play a sold-out show at the Open Air Theatre, and if you have a ticket, don't miss pop darlings Echosmith, who are providing musical support. Misterwives return to town with a show at the Observatory North Park, or hit Mission Bay by boat with the Rock the Boat Cruise. There are a lot of fun choices this Friday night, but my pick for the night has to be the Districts, who played at the Casbah earlier this year on a night when I had to work elsewhere, so this is like a do-over for me. They've been moving up the charts with lots of love from satellite radio, and it's only a matter of time before they break into the mainstream, too.
