Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 17

Get into the holiday spirit with San Diego's best

It's Sunday and you have some exceptional opportunities for enjoying a little fun on the town. For the daytime, head to the Casbah for a special Flim Flam Revue -- How the Flim Flam Stole Christmas -- featuring all of your favorite local country and Americana performers. By nightfall, head back to the Casbah for Lorraine Castellanos and her tribute to Elvis, or catch our friends the Nervous Wreckords at Soda Bar. Jhene Aiko returns to the Observatory, and it's country night up at the Belly Up, too, with Sam Outlaw, Nancarrow and Brawley. It feels like a good night for some holiday cocktails and fun.
