Sounds Like San Diego: May 1

Oysterfest 2014 Matt and Kim (1)
John Hancock

Friday will be a battle of the confetti machines, as Matt and Kim at the Observatory North Park go head-to-head with the viral video masters of OK Go. Both offer fun and sometimes interactive performances with their audiences, though Matt and Kim might have the edge for the number of simultaneous media placements they have at the moment. At the Casbah, the Soft Moon perform, while rock vatos Manic Hispanic play Soda Bar. If you need an all-ages show, Runaway Brother play at Gym Standard, a shoe store on El Cajon Boulevard.
