It's a rager of a weekend with so much going on. Kick everything off tonight with some killer live-music choices. At the Casbah, stoner-rockers Sacri Monti headline a big night (just remember it is still illegal to smoke weed in public). City Heights will be bumpin' as San Diego's punk scenesters bounce between Soda Bar and Space for La Escalera Fest, and our buds in One I Red celebrate a CD release at Black Cat. Kenny Wayne Shepherd kicks off the Humphreys concert season by the Bay, the Belly Up hosts the Highwayman show playing a night of outlaw country. I'll probably swing by the Ken Club for Unsteady and Downs Family myself, but find your sound and seize your aural pleasure.
