Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 13

Pinback offshoot Systems Officer headline the Casbah

The weekend is drawing to a close, but it isn't over yet, so make sure to get out and enjoy some of the fun this town has to offer. The sold out Tiki Oasis is wrapping up, but usually you can still sneak around the pool for some tiki tunes in the sun without a wristband, or head back to Liberty Station for day two of the always free Art Walk, with tons of visual artists and plenty of music, too. As night rolls in, the uber talented Angelique Kidjo plays Bayside Nights at the Embarcadero, KAABOO narrows down their local lineup with another Discovery Tour night -- this time at Moonshine Beach -- and Pokey LaFarge will transport you to another time with a throwback style that blends rock, jazz and blues. Last but not least, Systems Officer (Zach from Pinback) returns to the Casbah with a solid lineup featuring Hexa and Montalban Quintet.
