Sounds Like San Diego: May 12

Today is the final day of Gator by the Bay, and you don't want to miss out on all the fun

Jose Perez

I always love Gator by the Bay, but in my family, we always try to save it for Mother's Day, when we can all plan a day of leisure, rockin' out to the zydeco and blues bands, joining the throngs of diverse people in the music tents and chowing down on some amazing food. Today is the final day of Gator by the Bay, and you don't want to miss out on all the fun. Once the evening comes, you have some solid music choices, like Foxing and Now, Now at the Casbah, or the spacy hip-hop instrumentals of Harriet Brown at Soda Bar. Tedeschi Trucks Band are at the Civic and T.S.O.L. bring a little chaos to Ramona Mainstage.
