Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 11

A gigantic bill comes to Chula Vista on Saturday night as Weezer and the Pixies headline Mattress Firm Amphitheatre

If you are looking for some fun this Saturday, the sheer volume of events is astounding and certain to please adults and families with children alike. Between Artwalk Liberty Station, the Multicultural Carnival and the Philippine Cultural Arts Fest, you've got opportunities to eat great food, hear some traditional and contemporary music and catch some rays. By night, Weezer and the Pixies play Mattress Firm, Lemuria play the Casbah and Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas return to Soda Bar. Of course, we were pretty sad when 91x pulled the plug and canceled X-Fest, but three of the artists set to play have rescheduled at the Observatory. If you haven't seen the glam-rock beauty of the Struts, this is your chance to catch them in all of their glory.
