    Lauren Ruth Ward headlines Casbah on Saturday, May 4.

    There are so many awesome events this weekend, so you should definitely get out and enjoy any of the numerous festivals around town, whether that's Old Town's Fiesta Cinco de Mayo, the Asian Cultural Festival in Mira Mesa or Rhythm and Brews up in Vista. By evening, you can take your tequla nap and then get out to continue the party. At Vinyl Junkies Record Shack, check out a very special polaroid show by Craig Wedren of Shudder to Think which covers his decades of touring and will also feature a live performance, or, head to Observatory for Chromatics. Casbah welcomes the lovely Lauren Ruth Ward with Laura Jean Anderson, and up-and-comer Omar Apollo plays a sold out show at the Irenic. The lineup all the way down the list is strong tonight and you should live up the weekend while we've got it.
