Sounds Like San Diego: June 2

There's plenty of time to catch Floodflower, SonReal or Slow Caves once night falls

Alexander Tamargo/Telemundo

It's funny to measure your life in Rock & Roll Marathons, but basically my whole adulthood has been marked by them. Years where I slept right through, that one time a Casbah show after-party went on at a nearby hotel, and we were all still up as the runners started blazing past, and now, as we consider biking the course after the runners but before it closes to catch some of the early morning music. Not really sure that's even allowed, but parking hassles aside, it's kinda cool when we have those little windows of car-free streets. Still, the festivities will be over before you're even thinking about brunch. Instead, plan for tonight where any fan of Bauhaus will love LA's Floodflower, who play the Casbah. House of Blues Voodoo Room has a special show with SonReal, who insiders tell me is the real deal, and Colorado indie-rockers Slow Caves remind me of all the bands I loved in the '90s -- like an amalagamation of the "Singles" soundtrack -- play at Soda Bar.
