Sounds Like San Diego: September 2



    This weekend has so much in store for you, and it's already begun with the IDentity Festival happening right now at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater. This afternoon, you can head up to the Del Mar Summer Concert Series for one of our favorites, Fitz and the Tantrums, and then drop by Bar Pink tonight for Mister Heavenly, though we hear Michael Sera won't be with the band this time around. Plenty of other options to choose from, too, so get out and kick off the weekend the right way...with LIVE music.
