Sounds Like San Diego: Aug. 27

New Orleans' Trombone Shorty is a jack-of-all-trades

The weekend is drawing to a close, but there are so many fun bands to see tonight, you won't want to stay home. Trombone Shorty takes the New Orleans vibes to Open Air Theatre while legends Gipsy Kings play at Humphreys. Ozomatli will have the crowd on its feet at the Embarcadero and punk-rockers GBH play a sold out show at the Casbah. There are more shows today than your typical Sunday, so take advantage and get some music in your life.
