Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 5

They bring the chill, sexy vibes to a sold out show at Observatory North Park



    5 Falltacular Ways to Connect With Your Family
    Rosemary Bystrak
    Cigarettes After Sex headline Observatory North Park on Saturday, Oct. 5.

    There are some brilliant ways to spend your Saturday with the perfect weather in San Diego, including PB Beachfest, which seems to have expanded its stages, or La Mesa Oktoberfest, which features classic rock bands in addition to traditional oom-pah-pah music. Of course, the Vinyl Junkies Record Swap is a pretty great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, too. By night, Angels and Airwaves play the first of two sold out nights at the House of Blues with our pals the New Regime supporting, Cigarettes After Sex bring the chill, sexy vibes to a sold out show at Observatory and the Casbah will transform into an EDM hotbed with Lido. Sometimes I am stunned by the sheer number of things to do in this city, and I definitely recommend taking advantage while the offerings are limitless.
