Sounds Like San Diego: October 22



    North Park is the place to be today with the 2nd annual Rocktoberfest taking place behind the Birch North Park Theatre. Presented by West Coast Tavern, the Casbah and FM 94/9, the festival brings a stellar lineup on two alternating stages, so there won't be any downtime between bands. With Everest and San Diego alums the Soft Pack headlining the event and a solid lineup of San Diego's best to fill the rest of the bill, this is the only place to be today for the 21-and-up set. If you're not ready to call it a night when it's all over, head over to Bar Pink for the Makeup Sex or catch a cab over to Soda Bar for the Drowning Men.
