There are so many fun things going on today that it's hard to pick just one thing to do. Why not start your musical adventures early for a free (first come, first served) show at Quartyard with Robert Delong? From there, you can head up to South Park for Grampa Drew's Flim Flam Revue, which sees many of San Diego's finest musicians hamming it up. By nightfall, head to the Casbah for the Canadian alt-country of Elliott Brood or head to Soda Bar for the husband and wife "dub-pop" duo, Peaking Lights. Legend Buddy Guy performs at the Balboa Theatre, and even Barry Manilow makes a stop in town at the Valley View Casino Center. So much to do in just one day.
