Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 11

If you've got an open day, head up to Che Cafe for Bands Against Bigotry

John Audley
We all need a bit of catharsis and healing right now, don't we? That's why, if you've got an open day, head up to Che Cafe for Bands Against Bigotry. This is an all-day event with over a dozen of your favorite local acts, with proceeds going to the Dignified Learning Project, which seeks social justice and equality in education through outreach with students and teacher training. You know we love the Bassics, Bad Kids, Low Volts and Boychick around here, but there are a lot of new names and sounds to get to know, too -- all while supporting a good cause. By nightfall, Sugar Candy Mountain play Soda Bar, Art Unites hosts another event at the Casbah and Soja returns to headline the Observatory.
