Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 15

This weekend isn't slowing down with music for most of the fans out there. Stoner rockers Fu Manchu return to the Casbah, while Humphrey's goes all "I love the '80s" with the B-52's. KIDS. offer up a show at the Che Cafe, and Soda Bar takes its turn at "I love the '90s" with the rock band Trapt. The B-Side Players will get everyone dancing at the Belly Up, and Tiki Oasis continues to bring the kitsch to the Crowne Plaza Hotel. There are definitely amazing things happening on Saturday if you just go out and find them.
