Sounds Like San Diego: July 2

Celebrate a belated Canada Day at Soda Bar

What do you call people from Toronto? Are they Torontans like we're San Diegans, Toronters like New Yorkers or Torontites like Austinites? Maybe we could ask Diana, a chill-wave synth-pop band from Toronto, when they stop into Soda Bar tonight. Whatever the case, be sure to wish them a happy belated Canada Day. Meanwhile, the Casbah is stacked with four locals led by the New Addiction, and Paquita La Del Barrio plays the final days of the San Diego County Fair. For early fireworks, head to the Embarcadero for Summer Pops' annual Star-Spangled Pops.
