Did you know that almost exactly one-third of San Diego County is Hispanic. If you are some of the 1 in 3 like me, you are probably aware that tonight is going to be epic with a co-headlining show by Los Amigos Invisibles and Aterciopelados at the Observatory North Park. Both bands have become legendary in the rock en Espanol arena, though if you're in the non-Hispanic two-thirds of the county, you will love the bands, too. Meanwhile, Soda Bar has a rager with Epic Beard Men -- the pairing of Sage Francis and B. Dolan -- who aim to drop some knowledge on your dome. Nashville surf-rockers Los Straitjackets return to the Casbah, Sugar Candy Mountain bring psych-rock to the Merrow, and viral high-school goofballs Laundry Day play the Voodoo Room at House of Blues.
