Sounds Like San Diego: September 9



    If you're like me, you didn't mind the blackout so much, except for all of the amazing shows that were cancelled, but fortunately the San Diego Music Thing kicks off today, so you can get your fix tonight. We are thrilled about all of the showcases, but we're especially excited about our very own happy hour that kicks off the festivities this evening at Bar Pink. We lined up Trap Gold and everyone's favorite DJ, Gabe Vega. Wherever you end up tonight, and whether you participate in the San Diego Music Thing or not, there's plenty of music to make this weekend a memorable one.
