Sounds Like San Diego: April 22

Earth Day brings the phenomenal and hilarious Ron Gallo to the Casbah

It's Earth Day, so please don't be that guy that drives alone in your car to get to Balboa Park today. There are four stages of free bands, performers, and speakers, so you might learn a thing or two while you're enjoying the festivities and music. Once you've had your fill and have fully mastered composting, head to Bar Pink for their own "Earf Day" festival featuring bands all day. It starts at 2 p.m. and includes Mike Delgado's latest project, Braggers. When nighttime rolls around, you have to head to the Casbah to check out Ron Gallo. He was phenomenal a few months back when he played at Soda Bar -- not to mention hilarious -- and he's coming off performing at Coachella. It's been a busy weekend in San Diego, but you've still got the day and night before you dive back into the work week.
