We're bringing our free SoundDiego LIVE party to IB's Salty Frog on Friday night!

"Ain't no party like a SoundDiego party, woomp, woomp-woomp woomp!" We're doing it again and this time we're headed to Imperial Beach for some fun at the Salty Frog. We love the spirit and gusto of this little place and the mark they're making on music for a definitely underserved area of town, so we'll be partying with Coral Bells and Bad Kids, both of whom come from the area, along with LA's Blank Tapes to close out the night (the guest list for the VIP happy hour is now closed, but the event is free and open to the public. Entry is subject to capacity). Around town, the Sure Fire Soul Ensemble fire things up at the Casbah, LA indie-folk rockers Run River North are at Soda Bar, and our pals in Exasperation headline a sweet night of jams at Whistle Stop. To be honest, there's great stuff all over town, but we hope to see you at our free party to kick off a killer weekend.
