Sounds Like San Diego: June 2

Dramarama brings the '80s back in style at the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival

Alright, party people, it's been a while since your Friday night has been this stacked, so let's get to it. If you're up for a stay-cation or weekend getaway, get up to Temecula Wine Country for the annual Balloon & Wine Festival. They've got a pretty great nostalgic music lineup to keep your aural sensations happy as you sip libations and enjoy the scenery all weekend long (read the SoundDiego preview here). If that's not in the cards, our good friends Little Hurricane are back in town after moving north and tying the knot with a show at the Belly Up. Casbah will rock your face with the Creepy Creeps; Bag Raiders will have you dancing all night at the Observatory; and Black Sabbitch proves women can rock the classics at Soda Bar. The San Diego County Fair is officially underway with Lauren Alaina kicking off the Grandstand, and if you've enjoyed any events at Quartyard, come bid farewell before they close up shop for a couple months in preparation to move to their new location two blocks away. Just enjoy your Friday in moderation because the whole weekend has tons of greatness in store.
