Sounds Like San Diego: May 19

The "Game of Thrones" finale or day two of Fiesta Del Sol -- decisions, decisions

I know that today is a major television event. Many of us have been devoted for eight years and so it's kind of a big deal. But it's also true that there are a lot of people who don't care about said event, and for those of you out there, there are some worthy events. For one, today is day two of Fiesta Del Sol. Growing up in Chula Vista, this was one of my favorite festivals back in the day and my friends and I would beg to get rides to North County for it. Today, you can catch One Drop, Alo and Beatles' tribute Abbey Road. There's also a sweet show in Encinitas at St. Michael's with our buds the Paragraphs, among other artists. By nightfall, head to the Casbah to catch local punk act the Dodges or to Tower Bar for LA punk band Turbulent Hearts. No spoilers, please!
