Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 31

Creepy Creeps ring in the new year at Soda Bar

I can't pretend this is an exhaustive list of everything going on this New Year's Eve, but I feel like we mostly got you covered with all the live music events and then a few of the big club parties, too. And, of course, you were warned to buy tickets in advance, so the Donkeys at the Casbah, Big Head Todd at Belly Up and Alkaline Trio at the Observatory are definitely sold out, and my guess is others will sell out by the time this publishes. Still, you can look around because the Creepy Creeps still have some tickets available at Soda Bar, the party hosted by La Escalera at Til-Two will be an all-night rager and the big parties, like Big Night San Diego, seem to have an unlimited capacity since they have so much square footage to work with. As for us here at SoundDiego, it's been an amazing year of live music and we hope everyone has a happy and healthy new year.
