Sounds Like San Diego: August 12

Chicano Batman bring funk-infused soul and psychedelia to BeerX

This weekend promises to be a beautiful one as you slurp down some craft beers while enjoying an awesome 91x lineup of music. I can assure you that at least half the people there will be there almost exclusively for Chicano Batman, and the other half just haven't had the exposure to fall in love with them yet. If that lineup doesn't suit your fancy (or if you're a responsible adult who wants to spend time with your children), head to Liberty Station for Art Walk, which will also have some of your favorite local artisans and musicians for your enjoyment. By nightfall, Ludacris plays the track, Steve Martin & Martin Short are at OAT, Swingin' Utters play Space and the Queers play the Casbah. For anyone who didn't get enough of Comic-Con, legendary composer Hans Zimmer is at Viejas Arena at SDSU.
