Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 14

This Saturday has so many great reasons to get out on the town, whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with the one you love or you're just trying to treat it like any other Saturday. Ozomatli always bring a party whenever they're in town, and you can be certain their show at the Belly Up will be packed. In North Park, Logic performs a sold-out show at the Observatory, and in City Heights, Dirt Dress bring their LA punk vibe to Soda Bar. Personally I'm excited about the return of the Dodos to the Casbah, but get there early because there aren't many tickets left. For the most romantic event, head over to Dizzy's for the tribute to Louis Arstrong and Ella Fitzgerald -- I guarantee your sweetheart will be at your mercy.
