Sounds Like San Diego: March 12

G. Love and Special Sauce spread it on thick at Belly Up Sunday

If you're looking for a way to catch music and sunshine today, head to National City's International Mariachi Fest at Pepper Park. It's free and no doubt will keep you entertained all day long. By evening, San Diego still offers up some great music choices, like Philly punk band the Menzingers at the Irenic for an all-ages show. At the Belly Up G. Love and Special Sauce (also hailing from Philly) play a second night. Other shows around town include Willie Porter at Brick 15, local night at the Holding Company with Mad Tantra, and Portland singer-songwriter Jackson Boone is playing Soda Bar -- all making for a pretty great Sunday night.
