Sounds Like San Diego: March 17

At the Casbah, get down to the funky sounds of Moon Hooch

It has been a stunning weekend in San Diego, with plenty of great music and sunshine to remind us why we love living here. But the weekend isn't over, so you can still soak up the sun by day and catch some St. Patrick's Day fun, whether you're wearing a touch of green or not. At the Casbah, get down to the funky sounds of Moon Hooch, who went viral some years ago for their subway performances and have turned the project into a full time touring machine. Soda Bar will have you swigging some ale with the Downs Family, the highest demanded local band of the weekend, and for the more classic set, Il Divo return to the city at Pechanga Arena. I also have to shout out Sha Na Na, whose variety show was must see TV back when I was in diapers and dancing along to the television. They're playing Sycuan Casino and will most certainly bring tons of nostalgia for all attendees.
