Sounds Like San Diego: September 19

Tijuana's very own Julieta Venegas kick-starts the weekend at House of Blues on Thursday



    Thursday has arrived with plenty of shows to get you rocking into the weekend. The Hard Rock Hotel's 207 is jumping back into the music game with an amazing lineup featuring Carousel, Magic Wands and Okapi Sun. The club has had time to make sure they do things right, so there won't be any Black Lips incidents being repeated. The incredible Gold Panda performs at Casbah -- this is for the true indie fans who know the bands on the rise before they become a household name. Finally, at the House Of Blues, Julieta Venegas returns. The singer is able to mesh pop and rock as perfectly as when she performs in both English and Spanish. Although she's a Tijuana native, I'd like to believe we are one happy metropolis to claim her as our own.
