Sounds Like San Diego: April 9

The Palace Ballroom head up a night of incredible live music in San Diego on Saturday

Today is going to be an awesome day and night of music, rain or shine, so plan your Saturday accordingly. During the day, head to the Casbah for another Vinyl Junkies Record Swap with guest DJs like Mario Rubalcaba of Off! and Earthless, and Al Howard of pretty much all the Redwoods bands. As that finishes, head up to the Whistle Stop for the Flim Flam Revue, where some of your favorite local artists show off their country stylings. With the recent passing of Merle Haggard, I imagine this will be a cry-in-your-whiskey type of afternoon. To continue in that theme, you can make a night of it with O'Berkeley Where Art Thou at the Poway Center for Performing Arts. Around town, Andre Nikatina plays a $5 show at the Observatory, the Palace Ballroom headline Soda Bar, the Schizophonics are at Til-Two, and L.A. Witch return to the Hideout.
