Sounds Like San Diego: July 2

Kevin Morby resurrects the '70s for the holiday weekend

It has been ages since I've taken my own advice and straight chilled for an entire weekend, but with so much great music, I'm only breaking my rules to let you know what's going on, and then I'm going right back to a laptop-free weekend. Top to bottom, there are great shows all over, including the Loons at Soda Bar (with Schizophonics if you missed them last night) and music legends Kool and the Gang at the San Diego County Fair. Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords do their schtick at Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre at SDSU while Tribal Theory gets irie at the Belly Up. My bets are on either the Ken Club or Casbah; however, we'll just see if my mood leans toward the more jangly '70s sound of Kevin Morby or if I'm ready for a more punk edge at the Ken Club. No matter what, it's bound to be a good night.
