Sounds Like San Diego: May 23

This weekend is pretty awesome. Friday night was stacked, and Saturday is no different. At the Casbah, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion rocks your face, while X perform their second night at the Observatory in North Park. The Hideout hosts a special reunion of Sleeping People, and Fartbarf -- best band name ever --- play at Soda Bar. Soccer moms will come out of the woodwork for Train and the Fray at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre, while the EDM kids will be dancing into the morning at Valley View Casino Center at My Life Every Day USA. There's really something for everyone tonight.
