Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 20

311 headline an evening of radio hits and acrobatic feats

If there's one thing an overwhelming amount of San Diegans love, it's 311. Tonight you can "come original" at Open Air Theatre, and if you're super smart, you'll get there early to catch the always fun antics of New Politics. Expect some standing tucks, handstands and other limber gymnastics, all while never missing a musical beat. Meanwhile, around town, Casbah hosts Plane Without a Pilot, one of the newer bands on my "ones to watch" radar Warbly Jets play at Soda Bar and rock en espanol greats El Tri play at El Gran Patron on Main Street in Chula Vista.
