Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 22

Guns N' Roses come to paradise city

There are a lot of people who are really excited about Guns N' Roses being in San Diego tonight. After years of silence, members of the band reunited earlier for Coachella and subsequently announced a tour. Tonight they appear at Qualcomm stadium, and you can be sure that it will have people talking. The rest of us still have other options tonight, like Nina Diaz, lead vocalist of Girl in a Coma, who is performing at Soda Bar. At the Casbah, DJ Artistic brings back his Battle Bot contest, which has been really turning up the heat, You can also catch some '90s jams at Sycuan with En Vogue, Naughty by Nature and more. Plenty of good things to catch tonight, even if you're not "in the jungle, baby."
