Sounds Like San Diego: September 1



    I can hardly believe it's already September! As summer draws to a close, though, that doesn't necessarily mean much here in San Diego -- we might have to call this the month of festivals, as we kick off the month with the new SoCal Music and Liquid Aloha festivals up against the sold-out Awesome Fest, and close the month with things like the the Adams Avenue Street Fair. Saturday's listings are full of options for everyone and every taste, and by nightfall, you'll want to chill out, which will be pretty easy to do with the sounds of the Album Leaf at the Casbah. The mostly instrumental music offers a soundscape that fans have loved for over a decade.
