Sounds Like San Diego: August 2

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club hosts alt-rock icons Weezer Saturday

It seems like summers in San Diego just aren’t complete without a performance by everyone’s favorite alt-rock icon at the Del Mar Track. Weezer definitely have the market cornered when it comes to their incredibly catchy pop wall o’sound – and no one sports a cardigan better than lead singer/guitarist Rivers Cuomo. The band is just one of many San Diego favorites packed into the first weekend of August.
