Sounds Like San Diego: April 7

Three-time San Diego Music Award winner Low Volts is back

It's time to get outside! This weekend, you have several options for being outside while also enjoying live music. The CityBeat Festival of Beers takes place in North Park, Chula Vista has its Earth Day celebration and Liberty Station hosts the Tropi-Cali Beer Fest. Alternatively, you can drop by the Casbah for the bi-monthly Vinyl Swap with a sick DJ lineup. By nightfall, legends Jefferson Starship have a sold-out show at the Belly Up, the lovely Courtney Marie Andrews performs at Soda Bar and the Legendary Shack Shakers play unplugged at the Casbah with our awesome friend Low Volts back in town to play as support. It's a good day and a great night of music all around to make for a perfect Saturday.
