Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 27

Blackout Party throw record release party after some time away

It's a raging Saturday night in San Diego and there are so many amazing things to do tonight. For starters, Blackout Party have a big record release party at the Casbah, and since frontman Brian Holwerda moved to Nashville, it's been awhile since the group has played together. Meanwhile, Face to Face have been in the game for two and a half decades, and tonight they'll bring all of that stored up energy to the Observatory North Park. 91x has a day party at Liberty Station with their Beer X event, and Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa share the stage at Sleep Train Amphitheatre. For a special treat, South Bay's punk legends the Zeros play a special show tonight at Til-Two Club.
